Ruthie Ann Miles' Involvement in London The King and I still unconfirmed

Ruthie Ann Miles  who tragically suffered the loss of her unborn child in May, months after her daughter was killed in a Brooklyn car crash, had been scheduled to reprise her award winning performance of Lady Thiang  in the West End revival of The King and I which opens at the London Palladium on 21st June

Despite an earlier report, her involvement remains unconfirmed. It was reported on May 31st that Naoko Mori would share the role of Lady Thiang with Miles.

The producers of the West End production have provided a statement today saying, “As has always been the case, our thoughts and concerns have only been for Ruthie and her family and to respect their privacy at this most difficult time.“ They add, “Reports suggesting Ruthie has made a decision regarding performing in London are inaccurate. We consider Ruthie a beloved member of The King & I family in the West End, and she is welcome to join the production at any point. However, to be clear, no such decision has been made at this time.”
