Daniel Craig's Broadway Play Disrupted for Technical Difficulty
Daniel Craig bundles up on a chilly morning while heading to the gym on Monday (December 2) in the East Village neighborhood of New York City.
The 45-year-old actor is currently starring alongside his wife Rachel Weisz in the Broadway play Betrayal and the show faced some technical difficulties over the weekend.
“A black screen came down. After 15 minutes, Craig and the rest of the cast came out, and said they were having problems with the stage, but they were going to ‘give it a shot,’ and continue with the performance. They started to applause, but between each scene, the curtain came down, and the set was manually changed, which took a lot of time. By 9:30 p.m., they had only got through a few more scenes, and — while the actors made a valiant attempt to continue — some in the audience became restless and left,” an audience member told NY Post’s Page Six.
“The show’s automation failed after Scene 2, into Scene 3, necessitating manual set changes for the rest of the performance,” the show’s rep confirmed. “Of the 1,100 people in the sold-out audience, there were less than 10 requests for refunds or exchanges. There was a 15-minute pause following the breakdown during which the cast made the decision to continue the performance. They continued on brilliantly, and each scene change received a round of applause. They finished at 10:26 p.m., about 40 minutes later than usual. After an immediate standing ovation, Daniel Craig thanked the audience for their patience and the show’s crew for their efforts to ensure the show would go on.”
