Broadway’s “Machinal” Gets a Helping Hand From the Audience – Metropolis – WSJ

At the opening of the play “Machinal” at Broadway’s American Airlines Theater on Thursday night, the giant rotating set stopped working a few minutes into the show, halting the production for about an hour. A team of volunteers, including stage hands and crew members who were attending the opening night performance as guests, saved the day by manually pushing the 30,000 pound set during scene changes. —WSJ.
