Woman Sues Hammerstein Ballroom

A woman is reportedly suing the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York because a concert hall staff member allegedly denied her the use of a venue bathroom even though she was 35 weeks pregnant.

Lindsay Ekizian claims a building supervisor told her, “There’s a bathroom at the end of the block.” She was exiting a comedy show last October, according to the New York Post. She tried to get to a nearby diner but wet herself instead. She blames Hammerstein management for the humiliation.

A representative for Hammerstein did not return a call from Pollstar at press time.
