'Groundhog Day' star suffers painful injury during show

Press Trust of India  |  New York 

The new musical "Groundhog Day" star Andy Karl suffered a painful injury during a preview and finished his performance on a crutch.

The accident happened during the second act. The curtain came down and an announcement was made: "Is there a doctor in the house?"

But the show went on after about 15 minutes, reported New York Post.

During the curtain calls, "the cast was crying," a member of the audience said.

"Karl was also crying. He looked like he was in a lot of pain. He was favoring his left leg."

Like the 2010 Broadway show about the web-slinging superhero, "Groundhog Day" has been plagued by technical problems throughout the previews.
