When Langella fell ill on the weekend, producers cancelled the Sunday, Nov. 24 matinee rather than go on with an understudy. Since the Nov. 26 performance, however, cast member Dave Cale has been subbing for Langella in the role of Gary Essendine.

A spokesperson for the production said Langella has a cold.

There was no official word about the length of Langella's absence from the show, though early indications are that he'll be back shortly.

Directed by Off-Broadway wunderkind Scott Elliott, the revival of Noel Coward's 1946 comedy opened Nov. 21.
