Mozart and Salieri both got poisoned?

Presumably because of Nike Imoru's departure -- she and Spokane Symphony Musical Director Eckart Preu were to have collaborated on the show -- the April 27-May 20 slot in Interplayers' schedule previously slated for the world premiere of a musical play about the Mozart-Salieri relationship is now listed simply as a TBA.

At least SIE will present To Kill a Mockingbird (Jan. 12-16), Love Letters (Feb. 13-18) and The Miss Firecracker Contest (March 9-April 1, no fooling) before then.

Did Eckart truly agree to do this?

At various times, both Nike and Eckart told me directly that yes, they planned to do it as a project and no, they'd barely started thinking about it. Or words to that effect.

I spoke with Eckart Preu today and not only had he not been told that the Mozart and Salieri project was off, he didn't even know that Nike Imoru had resigned. (Her resignation was announced on Oct. 31.) So, not a lot of communication there.

Thank you for finding that out. I was just curious.
