Fuerzabruta: Second Collapse, at the Roundhouse in Camden Town, for London Theater Scene

By Classicalite Newsdesk on Jan 27, 2014 01:29 PM EST

It beggars belief, but there has been a second collapse at a London theater--within weeks of the dreadful Apollo ceiling collapse.

This one was at the Roundhouse in Camden Town, a rather less glamorous part of the city than Shaftesbury Avenue (where the Apollo is located), though trendy.

The accident happened during the Argentinian acrobatics show Fuerzabruta.

As The Guardian reports, part of the set collapsed onto the audience. Four people were taken to the hospital with light injuries. The offending piece of set was apparently a sail that had been spinning above the audience.

It was not part of the Roundhouse itself, nor supplied by the venue.

Despite this and the unconnected Apollo incident, there is no general feeling of anything inherently unsafe about London theater.

Nor has the box office been impacted across the industry.
