Theaters across the world that are showing the hugely successful musical Hamilton are to sell premium ‘safe space’ boxes, it has been announced.

In an effort to become more inclusive, venue operators are to offer enclosed seated sections of the theater where guests are guaranteed no interaction with the actors on stage.

A recent visitor to the New York production of the ethnically diverse story of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton agreed wholeheartedly with the decision.

“It’s an excellent idea. People come to the theater to escape the world, mainly because it’s so terrifying at the moment. And having to bang your hands together after every single song? Complete harassment.”

There has been some opposition to the proposal, with one amateur theater critic and part-time reality TV host taking to Twitter to decry the boxes as ‘overrated’.
