Polydor to Release New Lloyd Webber Tell Me on a Sunday CD

News   Polydor to Release New Lloyd Webber Tell Me on a Sunday CD The new recording of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s Tell Me on a Sunday — starring Denise Van Outen — will be released this month.

Featuring several new songs, the CD will be available on the Polydor label, and pre-orders are already being accepted through www.amazon.co.uk. (Universal Classics/Really Useful will release the CD in the U.S. May 20.)

A reworking of the song cycle written for Marti Webb in 1979, Tell Me On a Sunday concerns an English woman’s adventures in New York City. Originally written for recording and a BBC-TV television special, Tell Me On a Sunday became the first-half of Song & Dance, mounted at London’s Palace Theatre in 1982. Webb starred in the original London cast, and Bernadette Peters — who scored a Tony Award for her performance — starred in the Broadway version, which featured revised lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr. The new recording features the Don Black lyrics, although many have been updated by Black with new material by Jackie Clune.

Denise Van Outen, who starred in both the London and Broadway productions of Chicago, stars in the version now onstage at London’s Gielgud Theatre (Shaftesbury Avenue). The complete track listing for the new Tell Me On a Sunday CD follows:
