Funny Girl producers: "Our priority at this time is to Sheridan and her family"

Yesterday (1st March), Sheridan Smith wrote on social media that her father was seriously unwell meaning she would be unable to perform at that evening's performance. West End Frame sends love to Smith and her family.

The following statement has been released on behalf of producers: 

"Our priority at this time is to Sheridan and her family. Sheridan's primary concern is quite rightly her father's wellbeing, and we support her wholeheartedly. We would never ask nor expect an artist to perform in this situation, and ask that you respect her and her family's privacy at this time. She will not be performing in Funny Girl this evening, and we will take each day as it comes. Tonight’s performance of Funny Girl will go ahead with her understudy Natasha J Barnes. 

"The run of Funny Girl at the Menier Chocolate Factory has been a tremendous success, and we look forward to welcoming audiences to the transfer at the Savoy from April. For those patrons who have tickets to any affected performances at the Menier and choose not to see the show, the producers are in agreement with Sheridan, and would like to confirm her offer of tickets to see her in Funny Girl at the Savoy. Tickets will be subject to availability. Patrons should contact the Menier to make arrangements."
