Chicago playgoers demanded their money back after Fantasia missed a show.
Chicago fans of the Color Purple got a rude awakening when Fantasia wasn’t on stage for the play on Saturday. Fantasia was unable to perform because she was sick with the Flu and her replacement wasn’t anywhere near good enough.
People in the audience were pissed off and displayed that anger by demanding their money back after the show was over. After demanding their money, people were also pissed after learning Fantasia has missed a total of 50 shows altogether.
We understand everyone gets sick but Chicago wasn’t too understanding. An 8 year old girl in the lobby even broke out in tears after her mother told her Fantasia wouldn’t be there.
Remember last April, the show’s numbers went way down after Fantasia made her exit. We guess one monkey really does stop the whole show!
