Ed Asner hospitalized after troubles onstage during Indiana show
Ed Asner was hospitalized for exhaustion Tuesday night in Gary, Ind., after struggling with disorientation during his one-man show, "FDR," which has been touring for 3½ years.
The show started 45 minutes late, according to news reports, and 83-year-old Asner struggled with lines from the beginning. He was walked off stage by emergency medical personnel about 15 minutes into the performance.
But what a difference a day makes. "Reports of my imminent demise are greatly exaggerated," he tweeted Wednesday. "They tell me I am suffering from exhaustion. Thanks for the good wishes!"
