Broadway Beat: COVID Stops “Come From Away” Again, Michael Jackson Actor Replaced at Intermission
COVID: The Musical keeps going.
Last night at “MJ: The Michael Jackson Musical” actor Myles Frost, who plays adult Michael, didn’t come back for Act 2. He presumably tested positive for coronavirus. He was replaced by understudy Aramie Payton, who is said to have acquitted himself very well. Imagine being an understudy and being pressed into duty with no notice while the audience is busy peeing and getting drinks. These people are Talented and Brave!
Meantime. “Come from Away” has stopped again and will resume January 4th.
It’s a mess out there!
Performances of COME FROM AWAY on Broadway are unfortunately cancelled from Dec 30-Jan 2 due to the detection of breakthrough COVID-19 cases within the company. Performances are scheduled to resume on January 4.
We look forward to welcoming you all back to The Rock very soon. pic.twitter.com/AiORF5vgvA
