[CNN] Well hello, Bette Midler, it’s so nice to have you back where you belong.
The 71-year-old actress took a spill Thursday night during a Broadway performance of “Hello Dolly.”
Fans were alarmed when Midler tumbled while onstage.
“An hour into @HelloDollyBway & a tech snafu has just led 2 the amazing @BetteMidler toppling off a moving platform,” music critic Todd Simmons tweeted. “A literal show stopper.”
Midler reportedly fell just before intermission, but returned to the stage later to resume her performance.

Bette herself tweeted later: “You may hear I was in a little accident on stage tonight; two set pieces collided, I had to make a run for it, and I fell. But I’m fine.”
