Sandy Duncan, who stepped into Broadway's Chicago later than expected this summer after breaking her foot, stepped out again Aug. 20 when she injured the same foot during the first act of the night's performance.
A spokesman for the show had no immediate word about Duncan's condition or how soon she would return to the role of Roxie in the cynical hit musical comedy at the Shubert Theatre.
She did not perform Act Two Aug. 20. Standby Nancy Hess went on in the role over the weekend.
In April, Duncan broke her foot while in rehearsals with the national tour of Chicago in Sacramento, scotching her plan to join the tour and then hop into the Broadway cast May 25. All healed, she finally joined the New York cast Aug. 12.
As bad girl Roxie Hart, who murders her lover and aspires to a vaudeville career, Duncan is playing against the sweet, girl-next-door-type she nurtured in Peter Pan, The Boyfriend, My One and Only and TV's "The Hogan Family" (to say nothing of commercials for Wheat Thins).
