Aaron Carter back on stage in New York

Former child star Aaron Carter was back on stage in New York on Friday night (02Mar12) after missing several performances of his Off-Broadway show due to ill health.

The pop star-turned-actor was forced to take a break from his role in The Fantasticks after coming down with a nasty bout of strep throat, but he has now rejoined the cast at Manhattan's Snapple Theater Center.


In a post on Twitter.com on Friday, he wrote, "I'm happy to announce that I'll be back in to start performing... Tonight!" before adding after the show, "Just getting home from a great show and it's rainy outside. NYC. Blessed. Now it's time (for) Chinese food order in and a movie... Night night."
