Matthew Broderick was recovering from minor back surgery as he prepared to return to Broadway, the New York Post reported Tuesday, citing his rep.

The star and his wife, Sarah Jessica Parker, "were forced to miss some events in the Hamptons last weekend because of the surgery," sources claimed.

But his spokesman said Monday, "Matthew had a sports injury some time ago. He pulled something in his back and recently underwent routine surgery. It was a simple procedure. He is fine and is up and about and back at home."

"The Producers" star Broderick is preparing to appear in the Kathleen Marshall-directed musical"Nice Work If You Can Get It" in the spring.
