Theater Gone Wrong: Adam Pascal Recalls a Historic Aida Disaster
Thank goodness there was a doctor in the house. Well, maybe.
Adam Pascal may currently be starring in a musical called Disaster!, but he experienced a real mishap during the pre-Broadway run of Aida. The actually dangerous catastrophe happened toward the end of a performance, when a floating set piece (which he was on) came crashing down to the stage floor, injuring him and stage partner Heather Headley. If that wasn't bad enough, the "Is there a doctor in the house?" call from the stage yielded a particularly unhelpful result. But ever the troupers, they were back onstage two days later…thanks to some Ibuprofen.
