At 9:07pm (i.e. 1 hour after it was meant to begin) - to be clear the performance never started.


Twitter reports range from "serious injury" to "death".

So midway through? Perhaps some crazy fan went a bit too far.

Oh God, I hope the reports of a death are untrue.

Oh God, I hope it's not as serious as reported. My thoughts and prayers for the best are with all involved; family, cast and crew. Heavy prayer time.

It seems that there's only been one tweet that says the stagehand has passed away. I'm hoping that's just hyperbole.

Seriously hoping for the best. I can't even imagine the hurt the entire production and families are feeling.

Hope to hear more soon.

the facebook board is reporting a death by fans. . . .

I am PRAYING that this is not true.

Another RIP:

"RIP to stagehand @ Al Hirschfield, where @H2SBway is playing. Show was cancelled. How will this effect sales?"

Rumors of someone passing should not be posted.

The family should be notified first if ever it were to happen.

I wish BWW would remove this thread or the links and posts claiming so.

It is a great unkindness to the family of every stagehand at the show.

qolbinau, please censor your thread title in respect to the families.

This is breaking news relating to a public show on Broadway- if people want to know or talk about it, they should be able to, and have a right to be kept in detail. If you can't deal with the news cycle, stay off the internet. And TV. And out of the bookstores with the magazine racks. Basically, stay home in your little room and don't talk with anyone because they will offend your sensibilities.

I'm sure that given that its been at least an hour since the accident, the family has been notified. And I'm also sure they aren't checking BWW's board at the moment for info.

Well I do think that nomdeplume does make a somewhat valid point.

Oh come off it nomdeplume! I have suffered and ignored your rude posts for years and this 1 really takes the cake. You're not the BroadwayWorld police or the world police. If you handle your daily life with even a small percent of how you treat people around here, I can't imagine you're a person anyone would want to be around.

It is not a question of offending my sensibilities.

We have at at least one false report on here before and it was not appreciated.

A rumor of injury is one thing, someone's passing is another.

Even if it is only on here, someone may start making phone calls to the families.
