Zachary Levi - Zachary Levi Choked On Cheeseburger During Broadway Show

Zachary Levi's new Broadway show First Date got off to a rough start last week (begs08Jul13) when the actor choked on his meal in the middle of a monologue.

The Tangled star made his New York stage debut on 9 July (13), when the musical about an awkward dinner date began previews at the Longacre Theatre, and during one particular scene in the show, Levi took too big a bite of his cheeseburger and raised a few laughs as he struggled to manage the mouthful.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Tuesday (16Jul13), he said, "Live theatre has some hiccups every once in a while. There's a scene, where part of the show I'm eating a cheeseburger, and I start choking in the middle of the show and everyone started laughing.

"I was like, 'I could be dying right now and everyone is loving this'. I kind of screwed up a couple jokes and a song that I was supposed to sing because I couldn't talk, but it was fine, everything worked out and I didn't die."
