Grease star Stockard Channing has temporarily stepped down from the cast of hit play Other Desert Cities to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery.
The Tony Award winner will miss Monday night's (21Nov11) production and will be replaced by her understudy, Lauren Klein.
Channing is expected to be back onstage by the end of the month (Nov11).
Other Desert Cities at the Lincoln Center Theater also features Stacy Keach, Judith Light and Rachel Griffiths in her Broadway debut.
