Broadway: Tony Winner “Strange Loop” and “1776” Revival Cancel Shows for Illness, Other Shows Use Standbys
It’s 2:28pm. A half hour ago, two Broadway shows didn’t start their matinees. According to Twitter account BroadwayCovers, both “A Strange Loop” and “1776” had to cancel because of illness.
The shows are off tonight, too.
Many other shows, according to the BroadwayCovers watchers, are using standbys like crazy this week including “Hamilton,” “Kimberly Akimbo,” “Six,” “MJ,” and “Into the Woods.” In many cases the person replaced is the lead.
This is why Broadway must have a mask mandate in place. They should also be checking for vaccines. But the public doesn’t want it, they liked getting sick or sending the germs into the air, and onto the stage!
Most shows are off tomorrow for Christmas, so that will give everyone a day to get better!
