Claire Sweeney will star in a masterpiece of theatre at The Playhouse in Weston on November 10.
It will be a rare opportunity to see Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s Tell Me On A Sunday at the venue.
Now remodeled for Claire Sweeney by the masters of musical theatre, with an exclusive new song I Still Believe in Love, this is the definitive version of the classic musical for 2010.
Originally conceived for television starring Marti Webb, it 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.
The tale 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.
