Two audience members of the Broadway show “Billy Elliot” have filed a personal injury lawsuit after they were allegedly struck by a prop while sitting in the front row during a 2009 performance.
According to The Associated Press, the two women from Kansas City Missouri, had to be hospitalized following the incident.
WNYW reports that the lawsuit, filed in Manhattan federal court, claims the women were struck in the face by a plastic crate which may have slipped out of one of the performer’s hands while on stage or was accidentally kicked into the seating area just before the end of the first act.
