Mark Nash Takes Over as 'Old Man' 

Published May 1, 2009 at 4:27 p.m.

Did somebody say "break a leg"? Sorry, I couldn't resist. It is so, so not funny that poor Malachy McCourt, who's been playing the character of the Old Man in Vermont Stage Company's current run of Prelude to a Kiss, actually did break his leg. In two places, requiring surgery, we hear. Yikes!

I've never understood why theater people say that, anyway. What's the matter with "good luck"? But I digress.

For the rest of the run — through May 10 — director and VSC head Mark Nash will fill in for McCourt. Talk about a quick study. You can read more about the play (and find out about a chance to win free tix) here, and check out Elisabeth Crean's review in Seven Days here.

Our condolences to Mr. M, and best wishes to Nash. Break ... er, hang in there!
