Les Miserables & Curious Incident evacuated mid-show following electrical fault

Today's matinee of Les Miserables had to be abandoned twenty minutes into the performance after a piece of electrical equipment overheated (there was no fire as previously reported).

The Queen's Theatre was evacuated and fire crews were called. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, which runs at the Gielgud Theatre (next door to the Queen's), was also forced to stop mid-show.

Speaking to the Evening Standard, a spokeswoman for London Fire Brigade (LFB) said: "There has been no fire but a transformer in part of the threatre has overheated. The auditorium itself has not been affected. Two fire engines are on standby to oversee work by the UK Power Network. Around 1,200 persons had already been evacuated as a precaution before the arrival of the crews."
