Funny Girl is shushed

The People - - NEWS FEATURES - By Grace Ma­caskill

AC­TRESS Sheri­dan Smith was told to pipe down at the cin­ema – while watch­ing her­self on the big screen.

The star had gone along to a spe­cial one-off na­tion­wide show­ing of her hit stage mu­si­cal Funny Girl.

But a fan did not recog­nise her and com­plained she was noisy.

Sheri­dan, 37, tweeted: “I snuck into a lo­cal cin­ema so I could watch it with u all and some­one told me to shush and sit still. To­tally rained on my pa­rade!”

Then fan Katie Bruce­green replied: “I am so sorry. That was me. Just didn’t recog­nise you. The base­ball cap is a de­cep­tive dis­guise in the dark. I was too em­bar­rassed to look at your prop­erly even when you said, ‘I’m Sheri­dan.’”

The ac­tress thanked fans for sup­port­ing show­ings at Vue Cinemas across the UK, say­ing: “You have no idea how much it means.”
