My Hero Academia Stage Play's No-Audience Streaming Postponed due to Finding Two Positive COVID-19 Patients

No staff members of the show had been in close contact with the two

The official website for "My Hero Academia The 'Ultra' Stage Honmono no Hero: PLUS ULTRA ver." announced today that its no-audience streaming, which was set to begin on July 17, is decided to be postponed to a future date due to finding two positive COVID-19 patients among the staff members. 


As reported, the second show was originally scheduled to be performed in Tokyo and Osaka from March 6 to April 5, 2020, following the successful sold-out first show in the spring of 2019. However, most of the performances were canceled due to the spread of COVID-19 throughout Japan.


Then, it was set to return as "PLUS ULTRA ver." at Tokyo Dome City Hall in Tokyo from July 17 to 26, 2020. Unfortunately, one of the staff members was found to be infected with the COVID-19 on July 1. As a result, the organizers had decided to hold all of the scheduled 14 shows without the audience and to live-stream them on the web instead.



The play's production committee posted a message as below:


Thank you for always supporting 'My Hero Academia The "Ultra" Stage.'

Before resuming rehearsals for the recently announced live-streaming of the no-audience performances, we asked all the people involved in the show to take the PCR test, considering the current infection situation in Tokyo. As a result, two people were found to be positive for the new coronavirus.

We asked the local health center to confirm this, and it was found that no other staff members had been in close contact with the two, as it was before the rehearsals were resumed. However, it became difficult to resume rehearsals, and after much discussion with the organizers, we have decided to postpone the show.


We apologize for the anxiety and inconvenience this may cause, and we ask for your understanding.
