Passion due to reopen at Donmar Tonight

Sondheim’s musical Passion at the Donmar Warehouse is still due to reopen tonight following the accident with the gun at the matinee last Saturday. 

I doubt if David Birrell will be fit to return as last I heard he was still in hospital but recovering well from the injury sustained to his eye.  The Donmar don't carry understudies, so whoever the actor is he will have had some pretty intensive rehearsals with other cast members while the show has been closed. 

I suspect David Thaxton is dreading doing the the scene again where he has to fire the gun.

The rest of the run is virtually sold out and the Donmar are not planning on putting on any extra performances for the 1250 people who booked for the cancelled shows but are offering  full refund.
