Actor In Chris Rock's Broadway Play Continues Show After Bloody Head Wound!

Hopefully he's able to fully recover, since the show's been extended through July!

While backstage for a scene transition during a performance of Chris Rock's Broadway play The Motherf***er With the Hat," actor Bobby Cannavale banged his head badly, but continued with the play anyway.

Bobby's wound left him "sore and bleeding," and an ambulance was called, but Cannavale wanted to finish the performance.

Here's what a show spokesman had to say about the incident:

"He's a real trooper and it didn't seem to phase him a bit. During a scene transition about an hour into the show, Bobby Cannavale accidentally hit his head backstage. He took a hard hit and had to take a moment to compose himself. He was also bleeding a bit, so the show was halted for a 15 minute pause while he was bandaged up."

"Then, the show picked up right where it left off and he finished the rest of the performance."

Fortunately, Bobby went to his doctor to receive stitches immediately after the show.

We certainly appreciate his decision to finish the performance, and we're sure the audience was thankful, but his safety should be the #1 concern.

If this happens again, maybe you'd be better immediately going to a doctor, Bobby! We need you in good shape, if you're gonna continue with the show through July!

What do U think about Bobby Cannavale's decision to keep going through his injury? Commendable? Ill-advised? A bit of both?

Chris Rock's First Broadway Play Extends Performances Through July

Filed under: Broadway BabiesChris Rock

Chris Rock hat play

Although the play got off to a rough start, Chris Rock's broadway debut, Motherf**ker With A Hat, is extending its run through July 17.

The show was originally scheduled to close on June 25, but has since garnered six Tony Award nominations, including one for Best Play!

Congrats!

This show has had as much drama off stage as on, considering it was almost closed before it began with very little audience demand, but luckily for Chris his first play on Broadway is a success!

Good luck at the Tony's!

Chris' Broadway Debut Off To Rocky Start - And Could End Before It Begins

Filed under: Broadway BabiesChris Rock

In fact, it might be CLOSING soon! Ouch!

When we first heard about Chris Rock's first Broadway venture, The Motherf**ker With the Hat, we didn't foresee any problems. It has a great cast, a great creative team and a great script. By all accounts, this show should have opened and smoothly sailed into the hearts of theater-goers.

Unfortunately, such is not the case. The show is actually in a lot of trouble. Seats just aren't selling and there doesn't seem to be anything anyone can do about it, including Chris!

Last week, while Chris was making appearances on some high-profile shows like The Late Show, the play only took in $239,000 with a gross potential of $867,000. Adding insult to injury, on Saturday night, went most shows couldn't find room for their audience, "Motherf**ker" went up before just 600 people.

Damn! Not good - especially since its still in previews!

And here's the worst of it:

Unless the show opens next week to rave reviews, it will close the following Sunday, no ifs, ands or buts.

Sad! First casualty of the season, it looks like!

Comedians On Broadway! The Numbers Are In!

chris rock falls behind other comedians on broadway

Congratulations, John Leguizamo! You've come A LONG way since American Buffalo!

Last week, John brought in some very solid #'s with Ghetto Klown, which sold 77% of possible seats, and brought in nearly $350,000.

Robin Williams' comedy Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo sold 73.4% of possible seats, but brought in a gross of nearly $460,000.

Chris Rock's The Motherf*cker With the Hat didn't fare quite so well, with only 66.4% of possible seats filled, and a less-than-impressive $239,000 gross for the week.

Cheer up, Chris! Things can always turn around!

Have U seen any of these comedians on Broadway? If so, what did U think of their performances?
