    Construction Incident at Boston Theater Could Delay Opening of 'Moulin Rouge! The Musical'
    necn

    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.

    Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen defended the practice of separating families at the U.S.-Mexico border, saying that her department is merely following laws. Speaking at a White House briefing Monday, Nielsen said the issue has been growing for years, the product of loopholes that have created an open border.

    Jones says officials are still working to determine what the schedule implications are for "Moulin Rouge!" which was set to open June 27.
