Brady hurts leg during ‘Hamilton,’ recovers quickly


    Wayne Brady arrives on the red carpet at the BET Honors 2015 at Warner Theater on in Washington.

CHICAGO >> Wayne Brady said he had to abandon a performance of “Hamilton” in Chicago because he hurt his leg during the show.

The improv comedian and game show host, who is playing Aaron Burr at The PrivateBank Theatre, told the Chicago Sun-Times that he jumped off a stair during the first act of an afternoon show on Jan. 21 and “felt a pop in (his) calf.”

He says his leg then seized up.

Brady’s understudy replaced him for the rest of that show, but he returned to perform during a second performance that night and on Jan. 22.

Brady won a Primetime Emmy Award for “Whose Line Is It Anyway” and a Daytime Emmy Award as host of “The Wayne Brady Show.” He took over the role of Burr in Chicago Jan. 17.
