Such sad news. She was such a joy to watch when she originally did it in London. Pure brilliance. Amazing voice, perfect comic timing, wonderful acting ... I always thought she would be the 'Elaine Paige' of our generation.
I have to admit, when I saw the tour production, some time back, she sounded very hoarse. In a way, I'm glad that she's not continuing the role, as if she does, she might lose her voice altogether, and she will also get bad reviews. She is still going to do Wonderful Town, I believe, and she's got a radio show, has a documentary in Wales called 'Musical Maps', and is doing other television work as well.
As Maria says in the Sound of Music, when God closes a door, somewhere, He opens a window. I think that'll be true for Connie

Also I want to post about Connie I run her official forum . Me and Connie have been working together to design a charity calendar for 2012 . And it's a charity close to Connie's heart .
Connie has chosen a few of her favourite photos for the charity calendar, the proceeds from which will be donated The Institute for Laryngology and Voice Restoration in Boston. http://www.ilvr.org/
Just a few hundred copies of Connie’s calendar, which features shots taken and donated by professional photographers as well as snapshots from the singer’s own collection, have been printed.
You can preview the calendar, which costs £9.99, on the Connie Fisher Official Facebook page, while special signed copies will be available on e-bay soon . At the moment Connie has put 50 copies of the calendar up on eBay .
They can also be purchased by e-mailing email@example.com.
Connie underwent three operations at the Institute for Laryngology and Voice Restoration for a vocal condition she has had since birth.
She said the work that the institute does both for singers and other patients with voice problems is “amazing”.
They are currently working on a bio gel that will help throat cancer patients to speak again.
Connie is currently filming an action packed episode of Casualty and working on a second BBC television series .
“I’m very lucky to have the opportunity to get my voice back,” said Connie.
“This is a very personal calendar for a charity that’s close to my heart.”
Also check out Connie's Official website where she has posted about the calendar on there www.conniefisher.co.uk
