Following its recent run at the St. James Theatre, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black's song cycle Tell Me On a Sunday — starring Marti Webb, who succeeded Elaine Paige in the original London production of Evita — transfers to the Duchess Theatre for a limited engagement beginning Feb. 18.
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."
Webb last performed the role ten years ago in London and on a U.K. tour. On returning to her role, she said in a recent statement, "I’m thrilled and delighted to be doing Tell Me On a Sunday again. It means so much to me, it really does. It was one of the most important things to have happened to me in my life.”
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.
