That’s what the fans and NY Post are reporting.
Since summer, the occasional star of “The Color Purple” has missed nearly 50 performances, production sources say. Following a three-week vacation caused by the strike, she dropped last Friday’s performance, causing pandemonium in the lobby of the Broadway Theatre.
An 8-year-old girl sobbed uncontrollably when she heard Fantasia was not going to be in the show.
“It was very sad,” my lobby spy reports. “Her mother was trying to explain to her that Fantasia was sick, but the girl didn’t understand and just kept crying.”
[…] Since the American Idol began dropping performances, producers have refunded tens of thousands of dollars worth of tickets. Sources say Fantasia’s out a lot because she’s simply not up to the grueling Broadway schedule.
Uh oh..You know what–this is why I hate on some celebs..Excuse me? “Simply not up to the grueling schedule?” Ummm..This is what you signed up for right?..I’m pretty damn sure people are not up to shelling out their hard earned paycheck money only to not have her ass show up. Celie get on your job and stop pussyfootin around with
