NEWS: Jodie Prenger to star in UK tour of Tell Me On A Sunday

The Watermill Theatre production opens at Malvern Festival Theatre on 15 June 2021

Jodie Prenger is set to reprise the role of Emma in a UK national tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s classic musical Tell Me On A Sunday. This iconic musical features Andrew Lloyd Webber’s wonderful score, accompanied live by West End musicians, including the chart-topping Take That Look Off Your Face, and title track Tell Me On A Sunday.

The show charts the romantic misadventures of a young English girl in New York in the heady days of the 1980’s. Brimming with optimism, she seeks success 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 she’s been looking for love in all the wrong places.

 “Tell Me On A Sunday, with its cast of just one actress, is probably the most naturally socially distanced musical in the world! We are delighted that Jodie Prenger is able to return to this role to reprise her incredible performance.”
