Tyne Daly is on the road to a full recovery following a recent hospitalization, People reports. The Tony-winning actor was unexpectedly hospitalized due to an undisclosed illness February 2. 

As previously reported, Daly's illness caused her to exit the upcoming Broadway revival of John Patrick Shanley‘s Doubt, which began previews February 3 at the Todd Haimes Theatre. Understudy Isabel Keating took over for Daly for the first week of the show's run. Then Tony and Oscar nominee Amy Ryan (Only Murders in the Building) stepped into the role of Sister Aloysius full-time beginning February 13. Opening night, initially scheduled for February 29, has been postponed to March 7.

“On behalf of the cast and crew of Doubt, and the entire Roundabout family, we are elated that Tyne is on the mend and on her way to a full recovery,” Doubt director and Roundabout Interim Artistic Director Scott Ellis told People.

In a previous statement, Ellis said, “With respect and admiration for Tyne, we wish her the best and a quick recovery. We are grateful that Amy Ryan said yes—in a quick minute—to join our company and take on the role of Sister Aloysius. We deeply appreciate Isabel Keating, who remarkably stepped in with a day of rehearsal and allowed us to get the production up on its feet during this first week of performances.”

Doubt: A Parable opened at the Walter Kerr Theatre March 31, 2005, and ran for over a year. It was nominated for eight Tony Awards, winning four, including Best Play; Best Actress for Cherry Jones; Best Featured Actress for Adriane Lenox, who played the mother of the student; and Best Direction for Doug Hughes. Shanley was also awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The work received a film adaptation in 2008 starring Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, and Viola Davis, all receiving Academy Award nominations for their performances.

Set in an all-boys Catholic school in the Bronx, the drama ensues when the strict Sister Aloysius begins to suspect an inappropriate relationship between Father Flynn and a student. The cast features Liev Scheiber as Father Flynn, alongside Zoe Kazan as Sister James and Quincy Tyler Bernstine as Mrs. Muller. Rounding out the company are understudies Christiana Clark, Olivia Cygan, Isabel Keating, and Chris McGarry. Casting is by Jim Carnahan and Carrie Gardner.

Ellis leads a creative team that includes scenic designer David Rockwell, lighting designer Kenneth Posner, costume designer Linda Cho, sound designer Mikaal Sulaiman, hair and wig designer Charles G. LaPointe, and vocal coach Kate Wilson. Charles Means serves as the production stage manager.

In addition to Doubt, Roundabout's season also includes Jonah, currently running Off-Broadway, and Home, which begins at the Todd Haimes Theatre May 17.
