Marti Webb, the original star of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s Tell Me On a Sunday, is set to reprise the role at London’s St. James' Theatre. The revival will run for a limited engagement from January 7 through January 12.
“I’m thrilled and delighted to be doing Tell Me On a Sunday again. It means so much to me, it really does,” said Webb in a statement. "It was one of the most important things to have happened to me in my life.” Her other theater credits include Stop the World I Want To Get Off, Half A Sixpence, Oliver!, Godspell, The Card, The Good Companions, Evita, Cats, The Seven Deadly Sins and Thoroughly Modern Millie.
Tell Me On a Sunday is a one-woman show that charts the course of an English girl newly arrived in New York. Brimming with optimism, she sets out to find success, companionship and 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.
The show was originally performed as an album and then a TV special and later on staged as one half of Song & Dance. Bernadette Peters won a Tony Award for her performance in the 1985 Broadway production.
