Valerie Harper Rushed to the Hospital After Falling Ill Before a Performance

Valerie Harper was rushed to a hospital before a performance of her musical Nice Work If You Can Get It at the Ogunquit Playhouse in Maine on Wednesday evening (July 29).

ET reports that the fire department received a call for a 75-year-old actress backstage and unconscious. The artistic director also told the audience that Valerie would no longer be able to perform.

The director told the crowd, “She wants all of you to know after some fluids and rest she hopes to be right back here on stage later this week.”

A source tells the publication, “It doesn’t look good.”

However, the playhouse released a statement, “Valerie Harper was taken to a local hospital as a precaution before her July 29 evening performance of Nice Work If You Can Get It, at the Ogunquit Playhouse, after reporting that she was not feeling well,” Bradford T. Kenney, Executive Artistic Director, said. “She is resting comfortably and will remain in the hospital for observation for the time being. …. The audiences and all of us here at the Playhouse are greatly enjoying our time with Valerie here in Ogunquit, and we are encouraged that she is feeling better.”

Valerie had been battling brain cancer, but last year said she was cancer free and doing well. We wish her the best and hope she is doing well.
