Next Act For A Sensational Maria

Connie Fisher won herself the part of Maria in the West End revival of Sound of Music through a high-rating BBC Saturday night talent show in 2006. “On November 15, the West End show opened to universal critical acclaim for Fisher’s fresh, vocally thrilling performance. But four months into the run, she burst a blood vessel in her throat and lost her voice. Suddenly, Fisher became the poster girl for another morality tale altogether: pushed far too far, way too soon.”
