Sheridan Smith skips another Funny Girl performance due to 'indisposition'

Sheridan Smith has pulled out of performing in her West End play for the second night in a row due to health concerns.

The Funny Girl actress, who stars as Fanny Brice, will be replaced by her understudy for Tuesday’s show.

A tweet from the Savoy Theatre said:

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”.
