While performing in Stephen Sondheim’s Passion on The West End over the weekend, actor David Birrell was rushed to the hospital with a serious eye injury!!
He was in the role of Colonel Ricci when his character challenged another to a duel, and the gun, which was supposed to fire blanks, did not do so...
“During the matinee performance of Passion on Saturday David Birrell sustained an injury to his eye for which he is currently being treated in hospital. Our priorities are to David’s well being and recovery; and to theatregoers who have purchased tickets for performances in the coming days.”
Crazynesss... I hope he's okay / gets better soon!!
