Burst pipe cuts short first preview of Strictly Ballroom

A pipe burst backstage half way  through the first preview of Baz Luhrman's  Strictly Ballroom at the Piccadilly Theatre last night, forcing the performance to end early.
After a forced interval the theatre manager announced: A pipe has burst onto the stage and flooded the electrics causing tonight's performance to be cancelled. With the show then issuing a statement:  Unfortunately at the first preview of Strictly Ballroom tonight, there was a burst water main pipe backstage at the Piccadilly Theatre, which meant it was unsafe for the show to continue.
Will Young posted  a video of director and choreographer Drew McOnie running around backstage with buckets assisting with  the clean up .

Patrons have been asked to contact their point of sale for information and check with the Piccadilly Theatre for updates on future performances.
