Anyone know what happened?

Oh, no! I hope he didn't hurt himself on those cylinders, or whatever they are that he balances on!!!

he does so many physical stunts in the show, and there are very large risks attached. Who knows. I wonder how they replace an acrobat in the show?

Wow, I'm glad to have seen him (and by seen, I mean gawk at the eighth wonder of the world that is his thighs) a few nights ago.

Is someone else going to do the cylinder thing now? Or will it just be cut until he gets back?

They should just close the show for a month. No one can replace those thighs.
That's right! Underscore mother-fu@#ers!

Orion thanks you for all of your well-wishes. He wasn't exactly working when he injured himself. You see we were playing a game of little milk-maiden and the well hung stable boy. As you know these things can get out of hand and he wanted to try a new and very dangerous position. It didn't end well, but I am nursing him back to health as we speak.

Orion's injury is actually from when Iluvtheatertrash took a bite out of one of his thighs during the milk maiden game.

He looked like Conan the Barbarian when I saw the production. But, you know, HOT. So many gorgeous people on one stage!

So far his doctor has prescribed lots of massages. All over his body. I'm doing my best to help him.

I was at the show tonight :) it was my fifth time (including Boston) so I was able to catch the changes made with Orion out tonight.
First Yannick (aka mustache man) was all over the place tonight, basically filling in most of Orion's spots throughout the show while still doing his signature tricks.
-The 'incredibly short' when Orion gets on his hands was covered by one of the others players who just kneeled down basically. (This player also covered the accented 'we have no army')
-Yannick covered most of Orion's sequences in Simple Joys. Only cause I've seen it before did it stand out to me that someone was covering in this scene, because it really played well as usual

And Orion's 2nd act opener was replaced with a new trick with Yannick and Gregory arsenal. I don't want to spoil the trick here since I'm sure they will be doing this trick thoughout the month Orion is out.

I was at the show Thursday night and he did the balance thing but he didn't jump down the normal way he does. He dismounted the trick very carefully. I was wondering of something had happened. Speedy recovery Orion.
