Dick Van Dyke Injured; Forced To Cancel New Musical

Iconic actor Dick Van Dyke has suffered an injury, forcing him to cancel his new musical show in Los Angeles.

Geffen Playhouse publicist Allison Rawlings released a statement Thursday saying the legendary star — who turns 85 on Monday — is unable to perform because of an injury to his Achilles tendon, which began bothering him last week. As a result, the theater was forced to cancel the upcoming run of Dick Van Dyke – Step in Time: A Musical Memoir.

The Mary Poppins star performed in the preview show Wednesday night, but Rawlings says he aggravated the injury.

In the statement, Van Dyke said the injury is forcing him to be off his feet for awhile. He also thanked everyone for their understanding and support.
