Theatre goers attending an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical have received messages of sympathy from people across theatreland after parts of the ceiling at The Aldwych refused to budge at any time during the evenings performance.
Across town, people caught up in an incident at London’s Apollo Theatre talked of their relief at being in the audience when the ceiling caved in rather than at the Aldwych when the singing started. People being treated for cuts and bruises outside The Apollo said they were relieved to be going home in an ambulance rather than having to queue for a taxi outside The Aldwych
Eyewitnesses say there were scenes of panic and hysteria in the theatre and a group of Japanese tourists made a mad dash for the door when they realised they had booked tickets for yet another Llyoyd-Weber musical.
Medics treating people for head traumas and loss of hearing say the unfortunate theatre goers would have been better off having rubble fall on their over at The Apollo than suffer the misery created by another Elaine Page solo.
Accident Investigators arriving at the scene say they do not know what might have caused a hole to appear in the ceiling at the Apollo but they would be looking into it.
