Applegate Breaks Foot Onstage

CHRISTINA APPLEGATE has been forced out of the Boston tryout of the Broadway-bound revival of SWEET CHARITY, after breaking her foot during a performance in Chicago.

Applegate is expected to return to the musical by the time it starts preview performances 4 April (05) in New York City, says JOHN BARLOW, a spokesman for the show. The musical is scheduled to open 21 April (05) at the Big Apple's Al Hirschfeld Theatre.

Producer BARRY WEISSLER says in a statement, "The entire Charity family wishes Christina a speedy recovery and looks forward to welcoming her back to the company when the show begins performances on Broadway."

Applegate was injured during the opening moments of Friday's (11MAR05) performance at Chicago's Cadillac Palace Theatre, but she continued to play for about 20 minutes before the show was stopped. After a short delay, Applegate's understudy, DYLIS CROMAN, took over the role, and the performance resumed.

Applegate will be replaced for the Boston engagement of the show this month (MAR05) by her standby, CHARLOTTE D'AMBOISE.
