Tony Roberts Okay After Falling Ill Midway Through Performance of The Royal Family

Yesterday's matinee performance of the Broadway revival of The Royal Family, which is still in previews, was cut short after 69-year-old actor Tony Roberts fell ill during the play. The initial scuttlebutt was that Roberts may have suffered a stroke, but his daughter Nicole contacted BroadwayStars.com and issued the following statement: "Please spread the words sic that he is FINE!! It was NOT a stroke and he will likely be back in the show next week." Get well soon, Tony! [AP via HuffPo]
