Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s classic Tell Me on a Sunday is a one-woman song cycle that charts the course of a young English girl newly arrived in New York. The 2003 production of the show, starring Denise Van Outen as The Girl, opened at the Gielgud Theatre on 15th April, produced by Bill Kenwright and directed by Matthew Warchus.
Tell Me on a Sunday was originally released as a record and broadcast on the BBC during a TV special starring Marti Webb. It was later incorporated as one half of Andrew’s “Concert for the Theatre” Song and Dance. The 2003 production featured five brand new songs, some additional material by Jackie Clune and, following its extended West End season, the show then toured the UK with Marti Webb, Patsy Palmer and Faye Tozer alternately playing The Girl.
Featuring several of Andrew and Don’s most recognisable songs, including ‘Take That Look off Your Face’ and ‘Tell Me On A Sunday,’ the 2003 West End production garnered fantastic reviews, with The Times praising Andrew’s “superb gift for melody” and Denise Van Outen declared “a bona fide national treasure” by the Daily Mail.
