Maine actor Tony Reilly remains in a Massachusetts hospital following a Christmas week auto accident that killed his wife, and the theater company that he and his wife co-founded has postponed its next show.

The board of the American Irish Repertory Ensemble decided to postpone Eugene O’Neill’s “Anna Christie,” which was scheduled to open March 19 at the studio theater at Portland Stage Company.

Tony and Susan Reilly were both cast in the show, said director Daniel Burson.

AIRE board member Al Aucella said the board agreed to postpone the show out of respect to Reilly and his recovery from life-threatening injuries. “We don’t want to say it’s canceled, because we dream of Tony being well enough to put it on sometime in the future,” Aucella said.

The Reillys of South Portland were traveling to a family Christmas celebration in New Jersey when they were involved in a multivehicle accident Dec. 23 on the Massachusetts Turnpike.

Susan Reilly was killed, and her husband critically injured. He lost a leg, had surgery to save the other leg and suffered numerous other injuries. Neither the hospital nor his family have released additional information about his condition.

The Portland theater community held an informal Irish wake for Susan Reilly the week after Christmas. No plans for a memorial have been made.
