During her performance as Berthe in Pippin at the Sydney Lyric Theatre last night, Kerri-Anne Kennerley had an accident on the trapeze and sustained an injury. She finished her song, and was taken to hospital afterwards where it was confirmed she had broken her collarbone and sustained a chip to a bone in her ankle. This injury means that Kerri-Anne will be replaced by an understudy for the time being.
Kerri-Anne said, “Pippin has genuinely been one of the great experiences of my life, exceeding all my expectations. I love the show and performing every single time. The cast have always been supportive and now more than ever. What happened is just a random misstep in the trapeze and circus world. I’ve always felt safe in their hands but accidents just happen.”
