Kansas dinner theatre forced to cancel production after actor Judge Reinhold abruptly quits

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - A suburban Kansas City dinner theatre had to cancel its opening night of the play "Harvey" after a disgruntled Judge Reinhold resigned from the production.

New Theatre co-owner Richard Carrothers told The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/1dYXZfc ) that the "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" and "Beverly Hills Cop" star had appeared increasingly unhappy with everything related to the production.

The Overland Park theatrecancelled its opening-night show on Wednesday after Reinhold's abrupt departure. "Harvey" was instead opening Thursday after an afternoon matinee.

Kansas City-based actor Craig Benton was assuming the lead role in the whimsical 1944 comedy through Jan. 29, after which Los Angeles-based British actor Charles Shaughnessy takes over.

Reinhold said in an emailed statement that the theatre provides "wonderful entertainment" and this production wouldn't be an exception, even without him.
