Three stagehands were injured at Broadway’s John Golden Theatre. Apiece of rigging fell 30 feet from the theatre’s fly space above the stage around 11 AM on June 27th. The theatre recently housed Lucas Hnath’s Hillary and Clinton.

Two of the individuals were treated at Bellevue Hospital Emergency Room, and another was taken by ambulance to Weill Cornell Medicine Trauma Center.
