The singer who wowed theatre fans in London after winning a TV talent contest has been forced to sit out of musical The Sound Of Music due to illness. Connie Fisher won British TV show HOW DO YOU SOLVE A PROBLEM LIKE MARIA? last year (06) and has been playing MARIA in the revival ever since. But her run of good luck has ended - she has been advised to take a full rest this week after struggling with illness. Fisher recently extended her run in the show until next February (08).
