MOORHEAD — For the second time, Theatre B is postponing the opening of the musical comedy “Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play” due to the coronavirus.

The play’s initial opening date was May 6, but due to a case of COVID-19 in the production, the run was pushed back a week. In an announcement on Monday, May 9, the troupe set a new opening date for May 19, with shows the following two nights and a 2 p.m. matinee on May 22. The show will run the same times the following weekend, with the last four dates being “pay what you will.”
