Fatal Attraction's McNair Back in Show Following Onstage Injury

News   Fatal Attraction's McNair Back in Show Following Onstage Injury
Alana McNair, who plays "Glenn Close" in the Off-Broadway hit Fatal Attraction: A Greek Tragedy, was injured during the Friday, July 22 performance.

Producer/director Timothy Haskell told Playbill.com, "There's a window that 'Glenn Close' jumps through that is typically very safe. . .[On Friday night] a piece of glass bounced off the frame of the window and [hit McNair] right above the eye. There was blood all over her face, although it wasn't as bad as it looked. [Co-star] Corey Feldman looked at her face and stopped the performance." The incident occurred toward the very end of the show, with only a minute or so left of the performance. McNair was taken to a nearby hospital, but the injury did not require stitches, according to Haskell. The actress returned to the production Saturday, July 23.

The 70-minute comedy, written by McNair and Kate Wilkinson and directed by Haskell, began July 1, and the limited engagement is currently scheduled to run through Aug. 27. Feldman — seen in such films as "Stand By Me" and "Goonies" — is joined onstage by Kellie Arens, Nick Arens, Ebony Cross, Aaron Haskell, Sergio Lobito, McNair and Wilkinson.
