Seventy-six people have been injured, seven seriously, after part of a ceiling in London’s Apollo Theater collapsed during a show, police say. The venue in Shaftesbury Avenue was packed for a performance of ‘The Curious Incident Of The Dog in the Night-Time.’
Eyewitnesses heard “a crackling” noise before the collapse at about 20:15 GMT. Theatre-goers left covered in debris.
The Apollo’s owner described it as a “shocking and upsetting” incident and said an investigation was under way.
A spokesman for the company, Nimax Theatres, said “thoughts are with the audience and staff”.
A total of 51 people were taken to hospital but there were no life-threatening injuries.
