Movie and theater star Matthew Broderick underwent minor back surgery in preparation for his return to Broadway, forcing him and his wife, Sarah Jessica Parker, to miss the boat on some events around the Hamptons, sources told the New York Post in a story that was published on Tuesday. His spokesman, though, implores fans not to worry — the original star of the theatrical rendition of “The Producers” that rocked Broadway a decade ago will be back on his feet soon.
“Matthew had a sports injury some time ago,” the spokesman told the press Monday. “He pulled something in his back and recently underwent routine surgery. It was a simple procedure. He is fine and is up and about and back at home.”
