Actress Marie Wallace was injured in a fall from the stage at the Opening Night performance of The Last Romance, a play by Joe DiPietro, at Seven Angels Theatre last night.

Today's matinee (Oct 21) has been cancelled. Ticket holders for both performances may exchange tickets for a different date.

The first act of the comedy/romance had just finished when, in the blackout into intermission, Wallace fell off the front stage right portion of the stage. Houselights came back up and theater staff rushed to her aid. An ambulance was called and the stunned audience was asked to exit into the lobby for intermission.

After about 10 minutes, personnel started setting up food service for what was supposed to be the post-show party. An announcement was made saying that Wallace was in "good spirits" and was being taken to the hospital. The second act was cancelled and the aidience invited to enjoy the food. Later the theater announced that today's matinee also would be cancelled.

Updates on Wallace's condition and any additional schedule changes will be posted here at The CT Arts Connection as they become available. The Seven Angels Box Office is located at 1 Plank Rd., Waterbury. For information call 203-757-4676.
