Josh Gad pulled out of an afternoon performance of Gutenberg! The Musical! on Saturday as he required urgent treatment for an undisclosed “medical emergency”.

The star has been playing Bud in the musical at New York City’s James Earl Jones Theatre, but Russell Davies filled in for him as he had to spend the afternoon getting medical treatment.

“Not the news I’d like to share, but life happens,” he wrote on Instagram. “Unfortunately, I will not be at this afternoon’s performance of Gutenberg. I’m dealing with a medical emergency that despite telling my doctors I wanted to wait till Monday to address, they thought needed to be addressed immediately.

“Off to hospital for (hopefully) quick treatment and then with any luck will be back by this evening,” Gad wrote. “In the meantime, please help me wish @russelljdaniels the best of luck as he makes his Broadway debut as Bud! I know he is going to give you all the show of your lives!”

The Frozen star did however, return after his treatment to perform on Saturday night.
