About

The Production

Tell Me On a Sunday is a 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.

Marti Webb will perform the original production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s classic, for which she received huge critical acclaim. Tell Me On a Sunday was originally performed as an album and then a TV special and later on stage as one half of Song & Dance. The album Tell Me on a Sunday reached Number One in the charts and the single Take That Look Off Your Face

Reviews

‘Marti Webb does it proud’

It only runs an hour but it’s a golden hour. Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s song cycle – first presented as an album and televised concert before becoming one half of the West End show Song and Dance in 1982 – is the best thing they’ve done together and that includes Aspects of Love, Sunset Boulevard and Stephen Ward.

‘Marti Webb is predictably assured’

It’s quite an achievement as is keeping the audience intrigued for a full two hours. It was a one person show in the main house, too.

‘A triumphant return’

You must be mistaken. It couldn’t have been 35 years ago that Marti Webb first sang Tell Me On A Sunday; but no, the calendar never lies.

‘It’s nostalgia time’

Marti Webb bravely re-creating the one-woman Tell Me On a Sunday show of almost 32 years ago that took her out of the shadow of Elaine Paige and turned her from high-class understudy and go-to girl if you wanted a job done properly and professionally, into a genuine star.
