We love seeing Olivia Wilde onscreen, and soon get to see her onstage, too. As you may know, she’s in 1984 on Broadway, which opens on June 22nd at the Hudson Theatre in New York City. However, poor Olivia Wilde actually broke bones during her Broadway show, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and it’s not stopping her. Tbh, we’re not surprised. But what happened?!

Wilde broke her tailbone, as well as split her lip during the show. Ouch-ouch-ouuuuch.

Talk about committing to your work, amirite?! Unfortunately, Wilde’s not the only one who’s had injuries. Four audience members have fainted…and Wilde also broke co-star Tom Sturridge’s nose (!).

Yes, we’re in shock, too, but glad everyone seems okay!

In better news, ICYMI, this is Wilde’s ~first time~ on Broadway.

Well, we thought she definitely earned her keep before, but we’re excited that she’s making her Broadway debut. We also have a feeling it won’t be her last time onstage.

And if you’re curious, yes, this production of 1984 is based on George Orwell’s dystopian novel. However, it’s been adapted and directed by Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan. It’ll run through September 30th. We don’t know about you, but we want to get to NYC to see it, and STAT. See you on Broadway, so to speak!
