The article reports on the deferment of the release of the theatrical productions "The Women of Brewster Place," and "A Civil War Christmas," by Arena Stage Co. in the U.S. In replacement of "A Civil War Christmas," the 1963 musical "She Loves Me," by Jerry Block and Sheldon Harnick will be revived. Meanwhile, the showing of "The Women of Brewster Place," is scheduled to the 2007-2007 season after playwright Tim Acito requested more time for development.
