John Benjamin Hickey Tested Positive for Coronavirus & Was 'Brutally Sick'

John Benjamin Hickey has revealed that he tested positive for coronavirus, but thankfully he has made a full recovery.

The 56-year-old Tony-winning actor is currently directing the Broadway revival of the play Plaza Suite (starring his friends Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick) and all shows in New York City were shut down right as the show was about to premiere.

John started feeling sick on March 13, the day after Broadway performances were suspended.

“The day after they closed Broadway down, I was feeling funny, went to my doctor, got tested, got my positive results back and spent two weeks really brutally sick,” John said while appearing on Broadway.com’s Live at Five show. “I clearly came through it and am two-and-a-half weeks now symptom-free and feel great.”

“Giving everything we’re hearing and understand about it now, I consider myself profoundly lucky. I only ever got really sick. I never needed to be at an emergency room or at a hospital,” John added. “I had a doctor monitoring me the whole time. I was very lucky. I came out okay and feel like myself again.”

John‘s best friend Andy Cohen also tested positive for coronavirus.

You can watch John‘s interview starting at the 8:20 mark in the video.

Allison Janney, Corey Hawkins & John Benjamin Hickey Get Star-Studded Support At 'Six Degrees of Separation' Opening!

Corey Hawkins, Allison Janney and John Benjamin Hickey got a whole bunch of support at the opening night of their play, Six Degrees of Separation!

Oh, Hello co-stars Nick Kroll and John Mulaney, former Friends co-stars David Schwimmer and Matthew Perry, Andy Cohen, Teyonah Parris, Victor Garber and Samuel L. Jackson all stepped out to show their support for the Broadway revival held at the Barrymore Theatre on Tuesday evening (April 25) in New York City.

Inspired by a true story, the play, according to press the press release, “follows the trail of a young con man, Paul (Hawkins), who insinuates himself into the lives of a wealthy New York couple, Ouisa and Flan Kittredge (Janney and Hickey), saying he knows their son at college. Claiming he’s the son of actor Sidney Poitier, Paul tells them he has just been mugged and all his money is gone. Captivated by Paul’s intelligence (and the possibility of appearing in his father’s new movie), the Kittredges invite him to stay overnight. After finding him in bed with a hustler (Cusati-Moyer), their picture of Paul changes, and Ouisa and Flan turn detective trying to piece together the connections that gave him access to their lives. Meanwhile, Paul’s cons unexpectedly lead him into darker territory as his lies begin to catch up with him.”
