Miranda Hart apologies to fans after being absent from Annie in the West End!


Miranda Hart has today apologised to fans who have travelled to see her in Annie in London’s West End.

Multi award-winning comedy writer, actor and author Miranda Hart, made her West End Theatre debut as Miss Hannigan in Annie back in May 2017.

For the past week Miranda has been off ill from Annie with a throat infection.

Last week was ‘Kids Week’ in London’s West End, where kids go free to top London shows when accompanied by a full paying adult. There were also no booking fees on tickets, so as you can imagine Annie’s shows were sold out.

At the end of last week a spokesperson for the theatre company behind Annie told TwitCelebGossip: “Following a consultation with her doctor, it would appear that Miranda’s sickness earlier this week has resulted in her now fighting a throat infection and as a result she is not performing,”

Miranda has been quiet from social media while ill from Annie, but today (14th Aug) she tweeted the following: “All actors will concur, worst thing about the job, getting ill.Hate letting anyone down.Been gutting to be away from @AnnieMusicalUK but voice stronger every day.

“I’m SO sorry to all fans coming long distances. I now know the hazard of my new love – musical theatre.”

This is the first time Miranda has had a full week off from Annie since joining the cast in May.

Before the show hit the West End stage, Miranda said: “Miss Hannigan is a dream role, and certainly has been for me, but I never thought it would be a reality. But here we are and I have a newly found musical theatre-esque spring in my step!

“I hope people will leave the theatre feeling life is a little better and dreamier and jollier after watching it, as much as we feel that performing it. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some leg-warmers to put on…”

Miranda will continue to play Miss Hannigan in Annie until 17th September.
