TIM CURRY Pulls Out Of Theatre Production After Asthma Attacks!
‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show‘ star took on the role of the Player in a stage adaptation of Tom Stoppard‘s ‘Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead‘ in Chichester, England, before it moves to London’s West End later this June (2011).
But he had to withdraw from the play after suffering a chest infection and a series of asthma attacks.
A spokesman for the Chichester Festival Theatre says:
“For the moment the production will continue with the role of the Player taken by Curry’s understudy, Chris Andrew Mellon, while we consider our longer-term options.”
