Lorna Luft's Breast Cancer Reemerges, JUDY UK Tour to Wrap Run Early

The highly-acclaimed UK Tour of JUDY - THE SONGBOOK OF JUDY GARLAND will end earlier than scheduled, in Brighton on July 11, due to the star of the show, Lorna Luft's imminent treatment for Breast Cancer.

Lorna was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012 and finished her last treatment of chemotherapy in 2013 . She has been clear for the last two years. Sadly, it has now returned.

Lorna has now been advised by her medical team that she requires further treatment and extensive surgery. Consequently, Lorna will be returning to her home in the USA to undergo the necessary medical procedures.

Producer David King, of Spirit Productions who brought Lorna to the U.K. for the Judy tour said today;

"I am shocked and saddened by this news. Lorna is an incredible performer , and she lights up the stage at every performance .We wish her a full recovery from her surgery and hope and pray that her breast cancer will be gone forever. "
