Delta Burke
injured in Sissies rehearsal

Fractured ankle postpones actress's L.A. stage debut.

A not so funny thing happened to Delta Burke on her way to making her Los Angeles stage debut: The Designing Women star fell off a riser and fractured her ankle Sunday while rehearsing out playwright Del Shores's Southern Baptist Sissies. Her March 29 debut has been pushed back to April 5, and she will perform in a cast. "I wish I could blame it on the choreography, but it's not a musical," said Burke in a statement. "I just had a clumsy moment." She added that cast members were "sweet and concerned." Shores, in a statement, noted, "Our first concern was that Delta was OK. And today Delta called and said, 'I'll be back for final dress rehearsal on Tuesday, ready to perform on Wednesday.' Man, I love this woman! That's one week and two days after she broke her ankle; I think that's faster than Madonna after her horse-riding accident." For more information about Sissies visit www.SeasonofShores.com.
