A maintenance worker died after he fell from a scaffolding inside a famed Broadway theater Thursday, officials said.

The 54-year-old victim was doing working inside the Winter Garden Theater on Eighth Ave. near W. 50th St. when he fell around 50 feet about 8:45 a.m.

Medics rushed the worker to Mount Sinai Morningside but he could not be saved. His name was not immediately released.

The Winter Garden Theater has been closed to the public, along with all other Broadway theaters, since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic in March.
