The scary air situation in New York City has hit Broadway and theater performances.
Both “Camelot” and “Hamilton” cancelled tonight’s shows because of the hazardous air quality. Shakespeare in the Park was supposed to start free performances tonight but has postponed until Saturday.
Jodie Comer, star of the one woman show, “Prima Facie,” stopped today’s matinee after ten minutes because she said she couldn’t breathe.
The Vineyard Theater cancelled tonight’s performance as well. Other theaters may be making last minute decisions.
One thing about the older New York house: they are porous. Hazardous air can seep in easily. It’s more important to protect casts and crews.
