I don't normally get theatre gossip but I understand from a usually reliable source that Barbara Cook has dropped out of Jerry Herman's Broadway at the London Palladium on 4th May, although she is still advertised as appearing in some places. This is hugely disapointing for those who have booked the (very expensive) tickets. Can anyone confirm/deny?

When i was in NY 2 weeks ago we were talking about this amazing lady and someone mentioned then that she had been fighting a very bad bout of flu for some time. She's a feisty 81 year old and maybe this has just not gone away and if the cancellation is true then this may be the reason.
What a shame!
A young actress with Noel coward after a dreadful opening night performance said to him 'Well, i knew my lines backwards this morning!'' Noels fast reply was ''Yes dear, and thats exactly how you said them tonight'!'
