Despite poor weather, London theatre fans gathered June 13 outside the Prince Edward Theatre for a vigil to express solidarity with the Orlando shooting victims. The theatre, which is hosting the American musical Aladdin, has temporarily replaced the show's own posters with rainbow banners.

The nearby Palace Theatre, where Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is currently in previews, replaced a poster in front of the house with a rainbow flag as well.

The gestures honor the 49 people at the gay nightclub Pulse who were killed by a gunman early June 12. It is the biggest mass shooting in American history.

Here is the Palace exterior, as tweeted by J.K. Rowling:
