British theatre actress Connie Fisher has been forced to use a back-up track to support her damaged voice in London's West End production of The Sound Of Music.
Fisher, who was cast in the role of MARIA after winning British TV talent show HOW DO YOU SOLVE A PROBLEM LIKE MARIA? last year (06), recently (MAR07) returned to the SIR Andrew Lloyd Webber-produced stage show after taking two weeks off due to illness.
A spokesman for The Sound of Music says, "It does not completely replace her voice, she is still singing. The click (backing) track simply augments her sound for the audience."
