John Epperson Injury Sidelines Lypsinka!

News   John Epperson Injury Sidelines Lypsinka!
 
Lypsinka! The Boxed Set, which was scheduled to begin previews Off-Broadway July 22, has canceled its entire engagement owing to injuries suffered in a fall by star John Epperson.

Co-producer Kevin Maloney issued the following statement: “John recently had a very unfortunate accident--he fell on the sidewalk, seriously injuring his hands. After suffering serious sprains, he was told by his doctor that extensive physical therapy is required to get them back into good working shape. John is a career pianist when he is not working onstage as Lypsinka, so the proper attention to this situation is absolutely vital. John is devastated, but he, and my producing partner Joe [Joseph A. Berger] and I, all look forward to bringing back this acclaimed show at a later time when John is better able to dazzle as 'The Goddess of Showbiz'.” Directed by Kevin Malony and featuring a score created by Epperson, the show had been scheduled to run through Sept. 12. Epperson has been featured in the films "Black Swan," "Another Gay Movie" (as Lypsinka) and "Angels in America," as well as the HBO series "Sandra After Dark" with Sandra Bernhard and "Dragtime," among others.
