The West End's Falling Stars

0404.theatre.jpg They're dropping like flies in the West End this week. Mr. Sloane wasn't very entertained when its star Matthew Horne collapsed on stage and was forced to withdraw from the play. His co-star Imelda Staunton subsequently admitted feeling poorly herself, and neither of them appeared on Thursday evening. Next up was Rowan Atkinson, who has had to pull out of Oliver with a groin hernia (sounds real painful): rumours are that he is Fagin' it, but sources assure us that he should be back picking pockets in about three weeks. Let's hear it for the understudies in the meantime. (Image/Simon-K)
