The absence patterns here, sadly, are reminiscent of all the major musicals that had similar bouts of infection. Company had 7-8 out at once over 10 days. Plaza Suite bounced back quickly, since its cast is small and the infections were almost in sync. I have been moved by LTC's decision to cast this production so generously and beautifully, creating an entire world from Wilder's blueprint. I don't think this new wave of contagion could have been anticipated, and at any rate, a company can only be so large.
