Funny Girl for last night's performance at the Savoy Theatre, which is a few days sooner than planned.
The following statement has been released by producers Sonia Friedman, David Babani and Scott Landis:
We are delighted to welcome Sheridan Smith back to Funny Girl this evening. It is currently planned that Sheridan will also play this Saturday evening (not matinee), and Monday to Saturday next week (excluding the Wednesday matinee and Thursday evening performances at which Natasha J Barnes will perform). From the week commencing 18 July, Sheridan is scheduled to perform Tuesday through Saturday, with Natasha playing Fanny Brice on Monday evenings. This schedule is subject to change, but we look forward to continuing to entertain audiences at the Savoy Theatre until our run ends on 8 October.
Welcome back Sheridan. Hopefully your dad's treatment is going well and you will be left to get on with it and not constantly hounded by the press!
