Fire During a Live Show
Fire Safety during live performance is critical to occupant safety. This includes proper training of participants, crowd control, and stage staff. During a recent show of comedian Mike Birbiglia a fire started in the theatrical lighting above the stage in the fly area.
The fire is in a theatre which is at capacity. Part way through his act a person in the audience notices something wrong with the lighting assembly (a light on fire). The stage hands lower the rigging and put out the electrical fire, by unplugging the unit and the show goes on, so to meet your favorite question does this meet code (its our first video entry)?
