Following the incident at the Piccadilly Theatre last night (Wednesday 6 November 2019), the production of Death of a Salesman will go ahead with three special, scratch performances of the play at the Young Vic theatre. These will take place tomorrow night, Friday 8 November, and a matinee and evening performance on Saturday 9 November.
The performances at the Piccadilly Theatre for the rest of the week have been cancelled.
Wendell Pierce said: “First, I hope those injured last night in the incident are recovered and healing. Their well-being is the most important thing. I am also so grateful that the Death of a Salesman company is able to continue performances of Arthur Miller’s great play. The nightly audience response has been overwhelming, and I would like to thank the Young Vic for enabling us to continue on this special journey. In the time-honoured tradition of the theatre, the show must go on”.
Ticket holders for the cancelled performances this week will be contacted to make arrangements regarding these performances at the Young Vic. Everyone involved in the production would like to thank the Young Vic for making these special performances possible.
