Is Simon Callow having trouble with the demands of musical theatre? He was due to make his official stage musical debut playing Count Fosco in The Woman in White (See News, 1 Aug 2005), but tonight’s press performance has been cancelled – rescheduled, that is, although a new date has not been given – without explanation. Callow’s first previews were cancelled last month, apparently due to the actor suffering from a sore throat (See The Goss 31 Aug 2005). Callow plays the villainous Count Fosco opposite Ruthie Henshall as Marian Halcombe. He’s currently contracted until November 2005.
