The Huntington Theatre Company has canceled the final week of in-person performances of “Teenage Dick” due to “breakthrough cases within the company” — the latest theatrical casualty of the recent surge in COVID-19 numbers.
The show, which premiered Dec. 3 at the Calderwood Pavilion, was to have run through Jan. 2. Ticket holders will be contacted, the theater said on its website.
Digital tickets for a professional recording of “Teenage Dick,” a contemporary spin on “Richard III,” are available through Jan. 16.
“Teenage Dick” is the latest Boston-area show to shutter early due to ballooning COVID-19 numbers linked to the rise of the Omicron variant. Last week, “WILD: A Musical Becoming” at Cambridge’s American Repertory Theater ended its run early, as did “The Slutcracker” at the Somerville Theatre and “The Christmas Revels” at Cambridge’s Sanders Theatre.
