Before the final show today, she shared the following: “The King’s back had been giving him stop and start fits throughout the run of the show, though [it] seemed to be under control. I received a text yesterday in the early afternoon that Robb was lying on the floor, unable to move, he was in such excruciating pain…. We were trying to solve the problem through texts as he waited for the ambulance to arrive. [He] was admitted to the hospital for testing and released later last night.”
“It’s always a joy to perform Ionesco, regardless of the circumstances: to say his words, to exist in the world, is a gift. Since the King in Exit is losing all his capacities, so it all sort of seemed to work.”
She ended her note with “Hugs and wish me strength,” and added this PS: “running off after the show, while the crew loads the set out tonight, to fundraise for WHYY, beginning at 6:30 pm. Happy life.”
Speedy recovery, Robb Hutter, from all of us—and on with the show.
