Tell Me on a Sunday—with Denise Van Outen—Hits U.S. Record Stores

News   Tell Me on a Sunday—with Denise Van Outen—Hits U.S. Record Stores The new London production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tell Me On a Sunday is now available in U.S. record stores.

Released in the U.K. by Polydor in April, the single CD was recently released in the States on the Decca Broadway label. 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 original Don Black lyrics, although many have been updated by Black with new material by Jackie Clune. The 26-track CD also features several new tunes, including a new finale entitled “Somewhere, Someplace, Sometime”: “Looking for love is not a crime/Keep your heart alive/And love will arrive/Somewhere, someplace, sometime.”

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