Julie Andrews not staying silent despite losing voice

New York -  Julie Andrews, whose famous voice has been irrevocably damaged by a botched throat operation, has said that she has rediscovered her voice in her books and in directing theater.

Her latest children’s book, ‘Little Bo in London: The Ultimate Adventure of Bonnie Boadicea’ has just been released by Harper Collins, the Huffington Post reported.

It’s the fourth and final book in the series about a possibly magical ship’s cat that travels the world with the man who rescued her.

It’s the 27th book she’s co-written with her daughter, Emma Walton Hamilton.

She’s also directing a musical theater adaptation of another of her books, ‘The Great American Mousical.’

The show, about a troop of acting mice living beneath the floors of a famous Broadway theater, is being performed at the Goodspeed Theatre in Connecticut through Sunday.

Andrews thinks it “would do very well on Broadway,” where she says she would like to direct and produce.

Andrews said that she feels fortunate that she no longer can sing because it pushed her to find a “different way” of using her voice.

Paraphrasing a line from her ‘Sound of Music’ character Maria von Trapp, Andrews noted that “When one door closes another window opens.”
