The traditional good luck mantra for Broadway is “break a leg,” but it seems Keira Knightley can barely catch a break. Only a few days after her first performance was interrupted by a raucous audience member, Roundabout Theater Company announced that Wednesday’s performance of Thèrése Raquin had been canceled due to the actress suffering a minor injury.

Knightley is making her Broadway debut in the adaptation of Emile Zola’s novel, which began previews on Oct. 1 and officially opens on Oct. 29 at Studio 54.

Thèrése Raquin also stars Tony winner Gabriel Ebert and Judith Light, and Matt Ryan. Currently, Roundabout is hoping to resume performances on Thursday as scheduled.
