Producer of Tony-Nominated 'GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE' Struck by Car
The New York Post reports that S.D. Wagner, a producer for "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder", the new Broadway production recently nominated for a Tony Award for Best Musical, was struck by a car on her way to shop for accessories to wear to the June 8th awards ceremony.
A source reports, "a town car crashed into her while she was crossing 55th Street, sending her flying into the air before the car sped away."
Fortunately, Wanger was not hurt seriously. A friend shared, "She's bruised all along one side of her body, but is otherwise totally fine," and added, "Because her Tony night dress shows some skin, she has to have a makeup artist hide the bruises for the awards."
A representative offered a humorous take on the incident, commenting, "We didn't get a look at the driver, but we aren't counting out the possibility it was a producer from a competing show . . . Tony season can be murder!"
Wagner's producing credits also include Tony-nominated "A Raisin in the Sun", "Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike," and "Betrayal".
