A couple of hours before going on stage for the first preview of Doctor Zhivago on Friday night, Anthony Warlow tore a calf muscle so couldn't perform. The cast performed the first 30 mins of the show with Anthony's understudy, and the audience were invited back to attend a later performance when Anthony has recovered so they could experience the full magic of the show. Previews of Doctor Zhivago continued over the weekend and were met with standing ovations. Anthony hopes to be back on stage on Tuesday evening.
