Stage Play “World Trigger” for the 7th Cancelled Immediately
Due to Staff Illness

The stage play for World Trigger that was scheduled to open on the 7th in the Shinagawa Prince Hotel at 5:30 pm has been cancelled.

The announcement was reported on the official site, “Due to the illness of staff that are involved in the 5:30 pm performance, it will be cancelled. We sincerely apologize to everyone who was looking forward to attending the play with this last-minute announcement and ask for your understanding”.

Sales for the play will be held for ticket holders until 8:00 p.m. Information regarding refunds for tickets will be announced at a later date.

The same play is planned to be performed until the 14th in Tokyo and Kyoto from the 19th to the 21st.

Here are some comments.

Even before Covid, the main performers got the flu or other illnesses and the plays were suddenly cancelled. That goes for plays and concerts. Of course there weren’t as many cases as the pandemic though. Even though they cast the role with an understudy in case of situations like this, testing for Covid and other things happen that cause these events to be cancelled or not able to resume.

You never know what will occur right before the curtain raises. I think it would best to buy tickets with that in mind.

There’s been a lot of news like this lately.

Because of the Corona pandemic, of course the cancellation of the event is inevitable and its all the staff can do when someone gets sick. However, I feel bad for those who travel a long way for “this day”. Especially if they only get a refund. Of course, I do believe they are prepared for things like this but it just seems not to be worth it.

Once again another play being cancelled on the day of the play lol.

How about we stop going to see these half-assed plays.
Maybe then management will start to have a sense of crisis and cancel the show in advance or set up some kind of guarantee system in case of cancellation for the customers.

To be frank, this industry underestimates the amount of people who see these performances.

It’s probably because the where they do rehearsal and where the performance is being held are in the same location, but the play for Spirited Away at the Gionza Theater is still going to open.


Kind of a shame. I like World Trigger and these kind of stage plays would be interesting to see one day. Hopefully they have their refunds by now. Considering what I saw in the comments, these cancellations have been quite frequent. Nonetheless, there’s nothing that can be done. The health of people shouldn’t be trumped by entertainment. On the other hand, I can see why someone would be upset by this if they planned out a whole trip centering around events like this.
