The funnyman plays Malvolio in the classic comedy, but he spent the day feeling unwell and left the Apollo Theatre as soon as the play ended.
In a post on his Twitter.com page, he writes, ""Wonderful audience tonight: I've had a tummy bug & fever so slipped away early - apols (apologies) to stage door ppl (people). But thank you Dr. Theatre.""
Returning to the site on Wednesday morning (22Nov12), Fry assured fans he was feeling better after a good night's sleep, adding, ""Recovered from tummy bug thank goodness.""
