In an unusual turn of events for the Downtown Dance Complex production, Break the Floor’s musical director Travis Wall was cut from the touring production of the show after the discovery of drug use and improper behavior with underage girls led to the termination of the production’s star.
This Friday, Feb. 23, the U.S. Postal Service s conducted a search on the building of the Downtown Dance Complex. After a day of searching, Capitol Police executed a search warrant. Following the warrant, eight individuals were arrested. A spokesperson from the U.S. Postal Service, however, says its investigation into alleged drug activity did not include drugs being used by Travis Wall during his work with the Broadway production of Break the Floor, as previously reported.
Still, after joining the show this past year, Wall was found to have engaged in conduct with underage girls. He was removed from his duties with the production and was to be personally arrested, confirmed DCC Executive Director Priscilla Estrera. Meanwhile, more recent video revealed video to reveal Travis Wall engaging in inappropriate behavior with underage girls.
Wall denied the accusations in multiple statements to The Washington Post, citing a consensual drug-fueled relationship with a woman of 20. He was not directly asked about whether the relationship involved him using drugs with a minor.
