The iconic 80s musical will return this summer in a revived production that will stay on the road during the rest of the year. Starring Jodie Prenger, the show tells the story of a young English girl and her love struggles upon arriving to New York City. Having been played by world-renowned theatre actresses such as Bernardette Peters or Sarah Brightman, this new version will also include an intimate chat with the cast about life, love and character construction.
You must be mistaken. It couldn’t have been… Well, to the joy and relief of many theatregoers, it has, it is and it will be! The Watermiller Theatre Production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s iconic 80s musical Tell Me On A Sunday is hitting the road this summer! Starring renowned actress Jodie Prenger, the show will open at the Malvern Festival Theatre on June 15th, and will tour across the nation during the rest of the year.
“We are thrilled that we are able to revive the acclaimed production to be able to play a part in the reopening of theatres around the UK”, says producer Jamie Wilson. “Tell Me On A Sunday, with its cast of just one actress, is probably the most naturally socially distanced musical in the world! We are delighted that Jodie Prenger is able to return to this role to reprise her incredible performance as “Emma”. This production is the perfect way for audiences to support their local theatre with this classic show.”
Originally conceived for television, the piece centers around a young English girl and her struggle with her frustrations and search for success in New York. As she makes her way through the maze of the city while coming to terms with her losses, she will wonder if she’s been looking for love in all the wrong places. Having been performed by worlwide theatre stars such as Marti Webb, Bernadette Peters and Sarah Brightman, this new production will include an intimate chat with Jodie and Musical Director Francis Goodhand about life, love and playing the role of Emma.
Further venues for the UK tour include the Shrewsbury Theatre Severn, the Canterbury Marlowe Theatre, the Nottingham Theatre Royal, the Birmingham Hippodrome and the Sheffield Lyceum, among others – more stops to be announced in due time. Tickets can be purchased on the following link.
