Theater Gone Wrong: Taylor Trensch Steps and Glides to Barf During Hello, Dolly!

Before Taylor Trensch became Broadway's latest Evan Hansen, he was Barnaby Tucker opposite Bette Midler, Gavin Creel, and Beanie Feldstein in Hello, Dolly! On the night of the production's first preview last year, Trensch became violently ill with food poisoning. Before he could do his big number — "Dancing" — he found himself dancing to the nearest trash can, the stomach bug having become too much.
