Chicago Theatre cancels Mike Daisey performance, Q&A with Ira Glass

The Chicago Theatre has cancelled an April 7th performance of Mike Daisey’s “The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs,” which was to be followed by an on-stage Q&A with Ira Glass:

“Please be advised that the performance scheduled to take place at The Chicago Theatre on April 7, 2012 has been cancelled. Tickets ordered for the April 7, 2012 performance through Ticketmaster Phones or Ticketmaster Online will be automatically credited to the original purchaser’s credit card account. Tickets purchased through a Ticketmaster Outlet or through The Chicago Theatre Box Office must be returned to the original point of purchase for a full refund.”

Gee, I wonder why.

Some other theaters will run the show as planned and not issue refunds.

Thanks to reader Patrick for the tip.
