Another One Bites The Dust

According to Playbill Online, Kate Reinders, who currently plays Glinda in the Chicago sit-down run of Wicked, broke a small bone in her foot during a recent performance. where have I heard that before? Oh yeah...
"Reinders is the latest Wicked actress to suffer an onstage mishap. Kristin Chenoweth, who originated the role of Glinda, suffered a neck injury during the show's out-of-town tryout in San Francisco and wore a neck brace during part of her Broadway run. Tony Award winner Idina Menzel, who created the role of Elphaba, broke a rib during her final weekend of performances on Broadway. And, Stephanie J. Block, who plays Elphaba in the musical's national tour, suffered a back and neck injury during the tour's rehearsal period that caused her to miss several Toronto performances and the show's recent San Francisco engagement."
