Scott Elliott, artistic director for The New Group which presented the play, took to the stage before the curtain went up to announce that Zachary Berger would go on for Patterson and that the only signs of Patterson in the show was in the video part "so that's all very exciting and chillingly amusing," he concluded with a forced smile.
Moments before the show started, Elliott returned to the stage with an update — something to the effect that "It's a boy!" — and the opening-night audience cheered.
Mother and child — and actor and understudy — are all reportedly doing fine.
