COVID-19: Broadway’s Aladdin cancelled following Covid outbreak

This cancellation comes just as the show returned on Tuesday after 18 months.

In a Twitter post, producers said that testing protocols had detected an unspecified number of “breakthrough” infections amongst vaccinated members of the company.

The tweet stated, “Because the wellness and safety of our guests, cast, and crew are our top priority, tonight’s performance, Wednesday, 29 September, is cancelled,”.

Health and Safety rules require producers, cast and crew members to provide proof of vaccination or a valid exception in order to work, and they must also be tested every three days for Covid-19.
