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 — was originally scheduled to play two weeks at the Duchess through March 1. Due to ticket demand, the engagement was recently extended by one week through 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."
Song titles include "Take That Look Off Your Face," "Come Back with the Same Look in Your Eyes," "Tell Me On a Sunday" and "Let Me Finish," among others.
The musical supervisor is Simon Lee.
BBC Radio 2 recorded Webb's performance at the St. James for an April broadcast.
