According to a fan who attended the show, Parsons tripped while he was walking out for curtain call.

 

Following the show, their official Twitter account announced the cancellation of their later performance in a now-deleted tweet. It stated, “Due to a minor injury of a cast member, the Sat evening performance has been canceled. Performances will resume Monday night. Please contact your point-of-purchase for refund and exchange information.”

Luckily the show was only cancelled for a short amount of time, with Parsons set to come back for tonight’s performance. However, many ticker-holders were not so pleased about the cancellation. Some even pointed out that the show lacked understudies for the cast.
