Jordin Sparks, who recently joined In the Heights as neighborhood sweetheart Nina, suffered a hip injury during the August 28 evening performance. Sparks finished the remainder of the show, but did not go on for either of the August 29 performances. Her injury has yet to be officially diagnosed, and no return date for the star has been announced.
"Got my first Broadway injury tonight," the singer wrote on Twitter that evening. "Hurt my hip in the first act. But I finished the show! Thank you so much to everyone who came tonight. Sorry I couldn't sign. It's hard to stand/walk. Hopefully the physical therapist can fix me!"
In the Heights also currently stars Kyle Beltran as Usnavi, Marcy Harriell as Vanessa, Priscilla Lopez as Camila, Bianca Marroquin as Daniela, Olga Merediz as Abuela Claudia, Rick Negron as Kevin, Clifton Oliver as Benny and Shaun Taylor-Corbett as Sonny.
