Lea Michele’s not funny reason for cancelling on Funny Girl
September 11th, 2022 under Coronavirus, Lea Michele. [ Comments: none ]

On Tuesday night, Lea Michele began her first appearance as Fanny Brice in Funny Girl on Broadway. And yesterday, she announced that she was cancelling her first show of many.

UNFORTUNATELY. I HAVE OFFICIALLY
TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID. IN FOLLOWING PRODUCTION PROTOCOLI CANNOT RETURN TO THE THEATER FOR 10 DAYS.

THANKFULLY STAYING HOME TODAY AND CATCHING THIS EARLY PROTECTED SO MANY MEMBERS OF OUR COMPANY FROM BEING EXPOSED.

FUNNY GIRL HAS BEEN AND STILL IS TACKLING A TREMENDOUS WAVE OF COVID WITH CLOSE TO A DOZEN COMPANY

MEMBERS CURRENTLY OUT. WE ARE ALMOST ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS AND OUR SWINGS AND UNDERSTUDIES ARE DOING SUCH AN INCREDIBLE JOB TO KEEP OUR SHOW ON ITS FEET.

THIS WEEK HAS BEEN A DREAM COME TRUE AND I CANNOT WAIT TO GET BACK – YOU BETTER GET READY. SEE YOU SOON.

According to the show’s social media, the extraordinary understudy “Julie Benko will be performing the role of Fanny Brice for all performances through Sunday, September 18th.”

Personally, I wish they would just Benko the role. She has earned it, and the audience loves her.

Drake has that COVID bling

Drake doesn’t like to do anything one time, so he got COVID-19 again.

“I am truly devastated to say that I tested positive for Covid,” he wrote. “I hope everyone stays safe and healthy and I love you all I am so sorry for letting you down on our weekend
together and the moment I test negative I will give you everything I got on stage (except the Covid).”

At least he still has his sense of humor. Hopefully, that is a sign his symptoms are mild, and he will be better soon.

George R.R. Martin most likely got COVID-19 at San Diego Comic-Con
July 28th, 2022 under Coronavirus. [ Comments: none ]

George R.R. Martin decided to come out of hiding to go to San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend to promote House of the Dragon. Since we are still in a pandemic, he tried to be safe by wearing a mask at all times and only attended the panel. However, he went out to eat and took off his mask to eat.

Well, at some point between the convention and yesterday’s premiere of his newest show, the author tested positive for COVID-19. Therefore, all of his Los Angeles plans are cancelled. But, he is hoping to be better so he can go to the premiere of the first episode in Sante Fe, New Mexico.

Martin says his only symptoms are a runny nose and an occasional cough. Hopefully, it will stay that way so that he can finish the book he is working on.

I also hope that Comic-Con doesn’t turn into a super spreader event. But, I have a feeling we will be hearing soon that a lot more attendees got coronavirus.

Seth Meyers was supposed to do a week of shows. However, things changed for the Late Night host.

“After negative tests Monday and Tuesday I tested positive for COVID this morning,” Meyers wrote. “Canceling shows the rest of this week. Apologies to our scheduled guests and loyal viewers!”

This is the second time that he has gotten coronavirus. He previously tested positive in January.

Hopefully, he will be better soon and able to day drink with some more celebrities.

Loverboy won’t be working for the weekend due to having COVID
July 22nd, 2022 under Coronavirus. [ Comments: none ]

Loverboy is on the road with Styx and REO Speedwagon. This weekend, there were going to play three shows in Texas. But they announced yesterday that they were pulling out of them “out of an abundance of caution.”

However, they didn’t say why and their fans were not happy with that. Actually, they were downright mean. So today, the group explained why they will not be performing with the other two bands.

“We wanted to further clarify, that a couple members of Loverboy and our crew
contracted COVID-19, so unfortunately, we are unable to perform this weekend in Texas,” Loverboy wrote. “We wanted to let you guys know that symptoms have been mild, so far, and we expect to be back out on tour with our friends REO Speedwagon and Styx next month beginning in Virginia.”

Hopefully, this explanation will make their Texas fans fall in love with Loverboy again. If not, who cares? It is Texas.
