Robin Williams needs heart surgery

Comedian postpones 'Self-Destruction' shows

The Broadway run of Robin Williams solo show “Weapons of Self-Destruction” has been postponed because the ailing performer must undergo heart surgery.

The brief Rialto stint of “Weapons” was part of a current 80-city tour, the remaining dates of which have been pushed back until the fall with exact dates to be determined.

The Broadway run has been postponed until further notice.

The spring appearance at Broadway’s Neil Simon Theater proved popular enough to warrant the addition of three dates to the originally skedded five-date run. Gotham engagement had been planned to begin in late April.

Williams will undergo surgery for an aortic valve replacement, according to reps for the tour.

Tickets to postponed shows will be honored for reskedded dates. Refunds also will be available.
