When does she start SOM, does anyone know if this will be affected as well? (I hope it IS!)

If she doesn't do the tour of SOM what will they do? I know the alternate is fantastic but would they give it to her or pull in someone with more experience?

I don't know if i'm allowed to say but she's a recent graduate and incredible performer... her voice is superb and she'll be brilliant i'm sure.

Sad to read about this. Connie's such a lovely person - I hope all goes well with the op and she recovers soon.

tbh i think the SOM tour would sell without her. Grannies and gays a plenty will flock to see it. and it does say she aint appearing at all shows on the fliers too.

but then i also pose the question... does anyone really care if she does it or not??

(btw before the backlash begins i'm not damning connie as a person, i'm sorry to hear she has vocal problems... but come on as a performer.... i dont rate her anyway)

"Grannies and gays a plenty will flock to see it."

Well! That covers me and my guests.

Seriously - the attraction was to see her as much as it was the production, thus giving the grannies opportunity to say "Awwwww, bless" and the gays opportunity to say "I told you so".

Maybe the tour would sell anyway but a LOT of people would be disappointed.

I don't know who the alternate will be but I know she will be excellent, just not a name and importantly (to a large proportion of the audience) not Connie.
