Sheridan Smith skips another Funny Girl performance due to 'indisposition'
The Funny Girl actress, who stars as Fanny Brice, will be replaced by her understudy for Tuesday’s show.

Sheridan has used Twitter to hit out at critics in the wake of Sunday evening’s Bafta TV awards and has not appeared on stage since.
She wrote: “When will u stop bullying? I had the best night in memory of my girl @LisaLynch.”
Sheridan was nominated for best leading actress for her role in The C Word as the late Lisa Lynch, but lost out to Suranne Jones.
Bafta host Graham Norton’s opening monologue appeared to contain a joke at Sheridan’s expense, when he quipped: “We’re all excited for a couple of drinks tonight. Or, as it’s known in theatrical circles, a few glasses of ‘technical difficulties’.”
This came less than two weeks after a performance was cancelled halfway through, which producers said was down to “technical difficulties”.
