Marti Webb did a similar gig as an alternate much later in her career. After Maureen Lipman was cast as Mrs. Meers in the London production of Thoroughly Modern Millie, her husband (the playwright/screenwriter Jack Rosenthal) became seriously (and, it turned out, terminally) ill. Lipman negotiated - and got - a reduced performance schedule to allow herself time to manage his care, and the producers hired Webb to play the role two shows a week.
