Michael McKean, who is currently starring on Broadway in Gore Vidal’s The Best Man, was stuck by a car yesterday on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. He suffered a broken leg and is currently listed in stable condition.
His publicist, Harriet Sternberg, said that it was “pretty devastating” but “He’ll be okay, hopefully he’ll be fine.”
McKean was scheduled for last night’s 8 p.m. show of The Best Man. “It’s the first time he will have ever missed a curtain in his entire life,” Sternberg said. “He’s never missed stage, screens in film or television. His understudy has never gone on in 40-plus years,” she said.
As someone who was hit by a vehicle last year, I completely sympathize with McKean and wish him a full and quick recovery.
