Happiness did not last long for actress Lea Michele, who recently celebrated her installation on Broadway with the play “Funny Girl.” The “Glee” star has to temporarily withdraw from the theater mecca for testing positive for covid-19.
It was after showing “the first signs and symptoms” of the virus that he underwent a test, as he commented in a post he shared in the stories section of his Instagram account.
“Unfortunately, I have officially tested positive for COVID. Following production protocols, I am unable to return to the theater for 10 days,” Michele, who played Fanny Brice, wrote earlier last week.
Lea Michele also commented that the team that makes up the production of the piece faces a crisis in the face of the disease. “Fortunately, staying home today and getting infected earlier has prevented many members of our company from being exposed. ‘Funny Girl’ has been facing a tremendous wave of covid with about a dozen members of the company currently on leave, “said the artist.
He added: “We are almost on the other side of this. Our alternates are doing an amazing job keeping our show going.”
He also said that this week saw a dream come true and he hopes to return to the stage.
