Audience gives a standing ovation to the West End Theater show for the first time in months

On October 11th, at the London Palladium, the performance of the musical “Songs for the New World” received a socially distant standing ovation in appreciation of the West End live show for the first time in months. .. Palladium owner LW Theater said it had reconfigured the venue seats “so that the audience bubbles would sit at least 1m apart.” The stall rows have also been restructured, “to guarantee a distance of 1m before, after and to the side of each group,” they said. Ava Delaney, who recorded this video, told Storyful: “It was great to be back in the theater for the first time in seven months. It was like heaven, the whole room was electric and I couldn’t stop cheering and applauding all the time. The cast was on fire. And the show was exactly the message we needed right now, “Delany said he felt really safe about the COVID precautions implemented. “Everyone was wearing a mask all the time. It was so uplifting that every theater should use this as an example,” she said. Lambert Jackson Productions, the producer of the show, said on Instagram that the reaction proved “how passionate we are all about art, bigger and better than ever.” Credit: Ava Delaney via Storyful
