    A support beam at a historic theater under renovation in Boston has failed, potentially delaying the world premiere of "Moulin Rouge! The Musical."

    The Boston Globe reports a beam that supports a new steel grid above the stage at Emerson Colonial Theatre failed sometime between Friday night and Saturday morning.

    Robert Jones, a spokesman for the operators of the Colonial, says the grid did not fall and the issue was "quickly contained."

    Jones says the grid holds up a system for the stage scenery and lighting among other production equipment. He says it was not related to the infrastructure of the theater.
