A Broadway actress has apologized for "trashing" a theater production in New York on Twitter.

Morgan James, who appeared in the recent production of musical "Godspell," said sorry for criticizing New York production of musical "Into the Woods".

The actress wrote on her Twitter account Wednesday, "I am really sorry for this firestorm. For my words, for responses, for the chaos. I am so sorry. I had NO idea this would turn into this."

"I apologize to the cast, crew and creatives of the show and everyone at the Public," she added.

James reportedly tweeted to her 2,500 followers a negative comment about the acting and musicianship of Sondheim's musical after attending its first preview performance at the Delacorte Theatre in Central Park, New York.

Her controversial remarks stirred up anger of her fellow performers, and a musical actor Matt Doyle replied to James' original comment: "Really don't like seeing Broadway actors trashing other shows on Twitter. Have a little tact. We're all in this together."

James' original post has been deleted from her account.
