Wendell Pierce’s West End play Death of a Salesman is relocating to London’s Young Vic after a ceiling collapse caught theatregoers, staff, cast and crew off guard on Wednesday night.
The Arthur Miller play ended abruptly as plaster started falling and performances have been canceled for the rest ofthe week at the Piccadilly Theater.
The show will resume at the Young Vic theater in Waterloo.
Pierce, who plays protagonist Willy Loman in the play, has released a new statement, which reads: “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… In the time-honored tradition of the theater, the show must go on.”
Three performances at the Young Vic will take place on Friday night and Saturday.
