Classic Stage Company has postponed the beginning of previews for its upcoming production of Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig's Snow in Midsummer to May 20. Performances which originally scheduled to start May 19, with an official opening June 8 and a run through July 9.

Zi Alikhan directs the adaptation of the Chinese drama The Injustice to Dou Yi That Moved Heaven and Earth by Guan Hanqing.
