Jodie Prenger is heading to The Lowry in Salford to star in Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s classic musical TELL ME ON A SUNDAY.
Running from 19-23 October 2021, TELL ME ON A SUNDAY charts the romantic misadventures of a young English girl in New York in the heady days of the 1980’s.
Brimming with optimism, she seeks success 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 she’s been looking for love in all the wrong places.
The show’s producer, Jamie Wilson, said: “We are thrilled that we are able to revive the acclaimed Watermill Theatre production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s ell Me On A Sunday to be able to play a part in the re-opening of theatres around the UK.
“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.”
This iconic musical features Andrew Lloyd Webber’s wonderful score, accompanied live by West End musicians, including the chart-topping Take That Look Off Your Face, and title track Tell Me On A Sunday.
Jodie Prenger’s last visit to The Lowry was as the star of the National Theatre’s production of A Taste of Honey.
Originally conceived for television, TELL ME ON A SUNDAY has been performed by many legendary musical theatre stars including Marti Webb, Bernadette Peters and Sarah Brightman.
This new production for 2021 will include an intimate chat with Jodie and musical director Francis Goodhand about life, love and playing the role of Emma.
