Actor Nathan Lane was forced to sit out part of Broadway show The Nance this week (beg22Jul13) after injuring himself during the production.

The Mousehunt star has been thrilling audiences in Douglas Carter Beane's burlesque drama, but his understudy took to the Lyceum Theatre stage midway through Wednesday's (24Jul13) show after Lane hurt his leg on a rotating set piece.

Speaking to the New York Times on Thursday (25Jul13), he explained, "The turntable was moving very quickly and I misjudged it, and had one foot on the stage while the other was still on the turntable, and it pulled my leg. It twisted badly. I'm seeing a physical therapist today, and we'll see. I hope to be back in the show tonight."

Lane's physical therapy appears to have worked - he was back onstage for Thursday's performance, according to the New York Daily News.
