This is the 4th disappointment in one week for me. I hope when we hear from Old Vic, the play has just been rescheduled, and I will make myself available to attend. I'm just so tired of being stressed and disappointed from the fallouts of this virus.
If they rescheduled to April/May 2021, those who have tickets could use the same ones. So it would be May 2nd, 2021. Than those who can't make it would get refunds. Than Old Vic resells the ones that were refunded and they would have plenty of time to do that. So all the shows would be sold out. It would be a little rough for Old Vic short-term but way better than cancelling and not rescheduling or cancelling April (refunding half the tickets) and only have May shows. Of course it depends on the schedules of the actors and others involved in the show.
If it could be rescheduled to next April/May, I would definitely spend a longer time in London, and watch it twice, just to make up for this fuckery we currently find ourselves in. I was content with a 2-day visit and seeing it once, but for a reschedule, I'll treat myself to a double-dip!

I actually really like the idea of just wholesale moving the dates and thus everyones tickets to 2021. Makes so much sense but things aren't usually that simple. I am hoping for reschedule over cancellation. And yes this disease puts a lot of things in perspective. I am grateful for my job and the ability to work from home and get paid during a crisis. I am very scared for my fellow Americans and indeed humanity. I am a little contrarian though and am not sold that flattening the curve by shutting down the world is the answer ... but it is what it is and I am praying a month from now we see some improvement. If we do not, heaven help us and it's going to be long spring.
