Golden Theatre Springs a Leak, Causing Minor Delay at Avenue Q Performance

News   Golden Theatre Springs a Leak, Causing Minor Delay at Avenue Q Performance A leak in the Golden Theatre's mezzanine ceiling developed during the 7PM performance of Avenue Q Dec. 14, resulting in the falling of some plaster at the end of Act I. The incident caused a five-minute delay in the start of the second act.

A theatregoer reported to Playbill On-Line that the sound of the flowing water continued during the performance. A production spokesperson for the show confirmed that the falling debris did not hit anyone and no one was injured at the performance. The show is expected to continue as scheduled. Avenue Q sends up popular children's television shows such as "Sesame Street" and "The Electric Company," while serving up a bounty of pop culture references and solving the mystery of the whereabouts of former "Diff'rent Strokes" child star Gary Coleman. The production bears the warning: "Full puppet nudity, not suitable for children."

The new musical officially opened on Broadway July 31 following previews from July 11. The staging came off a successful run at Off Broadway's Vineyard Theatre, where it sold out and garnered the 2003 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical.
