100th Performance How to Succeed cancelled: crew member dies

At the 100th performance of Daniel Radcliffe's How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, tragedy overruled.., a stagehand (Male, 29) died due to complications from cardiac arrest before the 8:00pm curtain call...at 9:05pm Daniel Radcliffe and John Larroquette came to the stage to announce to the audience that the show was canceled due to, as Dan put it, "a tragedy within the company."

From the official press release of How to Succeed:

"The name of the deceased and any further details are being withheld by the authorities pending notification of the family. The incident was not caused by an accident related to the production. The cast, crew and theatre staff mourn the loss of this member of their theatrical family."

My thoughts/condolences go out to the cast/crew family of the crew member and everyone working at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre.
