The IU Auditorium postponed performances for four touring shows originally scheduled to run in 2020. They had previously been rescheduled for dates in January and March, but have now been delayed indefinitely.
The productions include Beautiful – The Carole King Musical, Napoleon Dynamite, RAIN – A Tribute to The Beatles and Waitress. Future dates for each show will be announced once they are confirmed, according to a Jan. 7 press release from IU Auditorium Marketing Manager Ryan Sheets.
The postponements are a result of health concerns over the coronavirus pandemic, according to a statement on the IU Auditorium website. With large group settings still considered a safety concern, the production teams for Beautiful – The Carole King Musical, RAIN – A Tribute to The Beatles and Waitress postponed their tours.
