Julie Andrews had surgery to remove non-cancerous throat nodules, and a close friend said the operation may leave the screen and stage star unable to continue as a Broadway musical headliner, a newspaper reported.

Andrews, 62, has been in Switzerland recovering from surgery, the New York Post reported Sunday."All we're doing right now is urging her to get as much rest as possible, and we're confident that her voice will come back to enable her to do some singing," producer Tony Adams said.
