Jodie Prenger is set to return to the role of Emma in the Watermill Theatre production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s musical Tell Me On A Sunday. The show will tour across the UK, opening at Malvern Festival Theatre on 15 June.
Producer Jamie Wilson said today “We are thrilled that we are able to revive the acclaimed Watermill Theatre production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s Tell Me On A Sunday to be able to play a part in the reopening of theatres around the UK. 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 as Emma. This production is the perfect way for audiences to support their local theatre with this classic show.”
The musical Tell Me On A Sunday charts the romantic misadventures of an English woman in 1980’s New York. Full of optimism, she seeks success and love – but as she weaves her way through the maze of the city, plus her anxieties and frustrations, she begins to wonder if she’s been looking for love in the wrong places.
Featuring Lloyd Webber’s soaring score, accompanied live by West End musicians, songs include “Take That Look Off Your Face”, “Tell Me On A Sunday” and many more.
Jodie Prenger most recently starred in the National Theatre’s West End production of A Taste of Honey, with credits including tours of Abigail’s Party, Shirley Valentine, Annie, Fat Friends The Musical, Tell Me On A Sunday and Calamity Jane.
This new production for 2021 will include an intimate chat with Prenger and musical director Francis Goodhand about life, love and playing the role of Emma. It will be directed by Paul Foster, with musical direction by Goodhand, musical supervision by Catherine Jayes, design by David Woodhead, lighting design by Howard Hudson and sound design by Tom Marshall.
