Lea Salonga no longer performing at SEA Games opening, cites schedule conflict

Award-winning broadway star Lea Salonga announced Monday night that she will no longer be performing at the opening ceremonies of the 30th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games on Saturday.

Salonga cited conflicts in schedule for her missing out the opening ceremonies.

“Leaving on a jet plane for Singapore tomorrow and will begin our 14-show Sweeney run on Thursday night. This means I will not be performing at the SEA Games opening ceremonies on Saturday. I won’t be back home til after Sweeney is done,” she said on Twitter.
