OVER­LAND PARK, Kansas — 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 the Fast Times at Ridge­mont High and Bev­erly Hills Cop star had ap­peared in­creas­ingly un­happy with ev­ery­thing re­lated to the pro­duc­tion. The Over­land Park the­atre can­celled 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.
