Electrical bugs cancel BUG's opening night at REP

Raleigh Ensemble Players has just announced that an electrical problem in the theatrical lighting at its theater at 213 Fayetteville Street has forced the company to cancel its opening night performance of Tracy Letts' creepy psychological drama, BUG. BUG had been scheduled to open Thursday night, Oct. 28, but the work required to get the last-minute "bugs" out of the theatrical wiring will make Friday's performance the production's opening night.

"During the final dress rehearsal on Thursday evening, we encountered some electrical issues," managing director Gary Williams wrote in an email to patrons early Thursday morning. "After several hours of working to address the issues,
we feel it best that we cancel the October 28th performance of BUG." With an electrician on site today, Williams is confident that the rest of the run will occur according to schedule.

Patrons who already had reservations for Thursday's "Pay What You Can" performance will have those reservations honored for any other performance during the run.

The production runs this weekend at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 7:30 p.m. on Halloween. It resumes Nov. 4-7, 11-14 and 18-20. Seats are currently available for all performances.

The REP box office can be reached online or by phone at 919 832 9607.
