They asked Stephen Daldry a few years ago what they should do if Thatcher died one night during the run.  

He said "Sing louder".  So I doubt they'll cut it.

Well I think they should atleast make an announcement at the start of the show

Im torn, the maggie thatcher song never sat that well with me anyway, and i think there will be an awkwardness at that moment tonight but the show is about so much more than just that moment so im sure it would be quickly forgotten

This has just been posted on Twitter - "The Thatcher puppet in Billy Elliot will wear a black arm band as a sign of respect."

They also gave the audience a vote on whether they wanted to hear it.  The Viva Forever audience has asked for similar tomorrow.
