The entire Off-Broadway run of Leegrid Stevens’ Spaceman has been canceled after the show’s star, Erin Treadway, was injured while exiting the stage after her first performance on February 22. Leegrid Stevens’ solo drama was scheduled to run through March 13 at The Wild Project.

After wrapping up her performance, Treadway tripped over a speaker and sustained injuries to both arms and her left wrist. While she is unable to perform Spaceman during her recovery, both the show’s star and creator hope it will return to the stage in the future.

Spaceman follows astronaut Molly Jennis on her attempt to be the first human to reach Mars. Seven months into an eight-month journey, she is the lone crew member of the space module Aeneas.

Directed by Jacob Titus, the production used advanced technology to bring to life the challenges and excitement of interplanetary space travel, including simulated micro-gravity. The staging also utilized an immersive sound design that earned creator and sound designer Stevens a New York Innovative Theatre Award for Ousting Sound Design during its premiere at Incubator Arts Project in 2012.

Spaceman was performed earlier this year at the Exponential Theater Festival. The Wild Project production, co-presented with Loading Dock Theatre, marked the show's Off-Broadway debut.
