Broadway's 'Gem of the Ocean' postponed

NEW YORK, Nov. 3 (UPI) -- The Broadway play "Gem of the Ocean" has been postponed while producers search for financing.

The $2.1 million production by August Wilson was set to begin previews Thursday, with a Nov. 11 scheduled opening, all of which have been canceled, the New York Times reported Wednesday.

The play, starring Phylicia Rashad as a 287-year-old woman in 1904 leading a conflicted young man through a surreal world, has been plagued with money problems.

Last week, one of the producers said the technical and set load in at the Walter Kerr Theater would be delayed due to lack of funds, a problem that still existed Tuesday.

Producers met Tuesday to develop a strategy for securing funds and figure out the current financial picture.

Ticket holders may obtain exchanges or refunds at the point of purchase.
