Posted on

Two women from Kansas City, Mo., are suing the producers of the Broadway musical Billy Elliot, for $4 million, claiming they were injured at a Nov. 23, 2009 performance when a prop struck them while they were seated in the front row. According to the AP, their lawsuit accuses the producers of “negligence and carelessness” for “hazardous and dangerous” props and choreography, failing to properly train the show’s performers, and neglecting to warn the audience of potential risks.

Producers for the show declined to comment.
