The Playhouse, a venerable stock theater on Maine’s south-east coast, said in a statement on Thursday that Harper is “resting comfortably.” The 75-year-old actress, best known for her role as Rhoda Morgenstern on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and its subsequent spin-off, Rhoda, has been appearing in the musical, with Sally Struthers (All In The Family).
In the show, Harper plays Millicent Winter, the wealthy, domineering mother of the feckless male lead. She doesn’t appear until Act II. The production is slated to run through August 15. There was no word yet about when Harper will return to the show.
