Zuppa cast: Stewart Legere hurts his foot

Poor Boy still goes on.

The show must go on with Stewart Legere (top right on piano).

Last week Tara Thorne wrote our cover story about Zuppa Theatre’s new production Poor Boy and their unusually organic creative process. This week Zuppa received a new challenge, as actor Stewart Legere, who plays pop star Sherman Oakes, hurt his ankle during a rehearsal. According to Sue Leblanc-Crawford, who plays dual roles of Ella Savant and Miranda in the production, the actor is still sore, but “Stew's foot is doing well. He's in a cast and crutches, but working them into the show!” The Tuesday PWYC performance was postponed (look for a new date TBA), but Friday night’s opening is still a go. Let’s kill that “break a leg” saying, already.
