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]
