Jim Parson's injury forces cancellation of 'The Boys In the Band' performance
According to those who attended the show, The Big Bang Theory star tripped when walking out for a curtain call
During a performance of the Broadway revival of the 1968 Broadway hit The Boys In the Band, cast member Jim Parsons tripped causing the cancellation of the show. Jim got injured after he fell and was seen limping as reported by the Associated Press.
The production tweeted on Saturday, "Due to a minor injury of a cast member, the [Saturday] evening performance has been canceled. Performances will resume Monday night. Please contact your point-of-purchase for refund and exchange information."
The Big Bang Theory star is part of the musical cast alongside big names such as Zachary Quinto, Andrew Rannells and Matt Bomer. Performers such as Robin De Jesús, Brian Hutchison, Michael Benjamin Washington and Tuc Watkins are also part of the cast. The production is being directed by Joe Mantello and produced by Broadway mainstay David Stone and TV ace Ryan Murphy.
As reported by Daily Mail, Ryan Murphy shared in a statement, "The significance of The Boys in the Band cannot be underestimated. In 1968, Mart Crowley made theatrical history by giving voice to gay men onstage, in this uncompromising, blisteringly honest, and wickedly funny play."
"The play was groundbreaking in its exploration of how gay men treated each other and how they were made to feel about themselves. And while some attitudes have thankfully shifted, it’s important to be reminded of what we have overcome and how much further we still have to go," he continued.
Boys In the Band uploaded a tweet which read, "Due to a minor injury of a cast member, the Sat evening performance has been canceled. Performances will resume Monday night. Please contact your point-of-purchase for refund and exchange information."
