Broadway's Gavin Creel Believes He Has Coronavirus, Hasn't Been Tested Though

Broadway star Gavin Creel says he has coronavirus, though he hasn’t been officially tested to confirm his belief.

The 43-year-old Tony-winning actor opened up during a live stream with his friends Audra McDonald and Will Swenson on Saturday (March 21).

Gavin says he contracted the virus while starring in the musical Waitress in London. He and his longtime BFF Sara Bareilles played their final performance in the show on March 14 so that they could fly back to the U.S. before things got worse with the pandemic.

“I’m feeling okay. I haven’t been tested, but I have coronavirus,” Gavin said during the live stream. “I found out because one of my castmates from Waitress tested positive and I have every symptom, but I feel good. I’ve been staying inside. I’ll be inside for the duration.”

Gavin comes into the video at around the 20-minute mark.

The live stream was organized to support The Actors Fund, an organization that is looking after actors who are out of work because of the coronavirus pandemic.
