Going tomorrow to see Wicked. Bit disappointed about seeing the understudy, but pray to God Kristin and Idina are there. Here is the scoop from Broadway.com:

o no! What a shame- but now it's the understudy's chance to shine. Any one seeing WICKED this week? Tell us how the new Fiyero is!

This is an incredible tragedy not only for Norbert but also for the entire Broadway community. And also humanity.

I heard that they are dimming the lights on Broadway tomorrow night and all shows will have a moment of silence during the curtain calls.

I don't know about you guys, but down here in Tampa Bay we're having a candle light vigil for his safe return to WICKED.
Bill Finn rocks. Woot.

Yikes, more malaise in Oz. (Now I feel terrible for dissing Norbert's costume -- calling undo attention to his "Seabiscuit" jodhpurs only last week.) Then some callous person here called the entire Butz Talk thread ... OT. Well, it ain't OT no more.

Between KC's neck and the Butz spine, those folks need a chiropractor on call. Hope he gets better soon.
