Claire Sweeney stars in Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s masterpiece of musical theatre, TELL ME ON A SUNDAY. Opening at the Royal & Derngate Theatre, Northampton on Monday 30th August 2010, TELL ME ON A SUNDAY then embarks on a major national tour (National Press Night: Thursday 2nd September).
Originally conceived for television starring Marti Webb, TELL ME ON A SUNDAY has been performed by legendary musical theatre stars Elaine Paige, Sarah Brightman and Denise Van Outen. Now Claire Sweeney takes on this celebrated role which features a wonderful score and the chart-topping hit ‘Take That Look Off Your Face’, ‘Unexpected Song’ and the title track ‘Tell Me on a Sunday’.
This production has been remodelled for Claire by the masters of musical theatre, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black, with an exclusive new song ‘I Still Believe in Love’ – this is the definitive version of the classic musical for 2010.
TELL ME ON A SUNDAY charts the romantic misadventures of a young English girl newly arrived in New York. Brimming with optimism, she seeks success, companionship and, of course, love. But as she weaves her way through the maze of the city and her own anxieties, frustrations and heartaches she begins to wonder whether – in fact – she’s been looking for love in all the wrong places.
