BalletLORENT cancelled because of barf
Posted: November 26th, 2007 - 10:06am by Doug PowellThe Blackpool Gazette in the U.K. reports that a second Blackpool hotel, the Metropole, is at the centre of a suspected norovirus outbreak.
The Newcastle-based balletLORENT performed their opening night on Friday, but Saturday's performance was called off 15 minutes after the curtain was due to go up.
Grand Theatre house manager Stephen Williams took to the stage to break the bad news to the audience, stating,
"Unfortunately due to a virulent outbreak of food poisoning the company is unable to perform. They are unable to perform how they wish to perform and how you would like to see them perform."
The audience was offered a full refund or credit note to use for future productions.
