Marti Webb, who debuted Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black's song cycle Tell Me On a Sunday in 1980, recently performed two tunes from that one-woman show at a birthday celebration for lyricist Black.
As previously reported, Webb, who created the role of an English gal in America in Tell Me On a Sunday — first on record and later as the first half of the long-running London production of Song and Dance — will perform the song cycle for three weeks at the Duchess Theatre, Feb. 18-March 8.
Tell Me On a Sunday, according to press notes, is "a one-woman 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."
