Don't miss the exclusive world premiere of Sleepless, the enchanting romantic musical comedy based on the original screenplay Sleepless in Seattle. Brimming with all the charm of the much-loved film, Sleepless features a sparkling jazz-inspired score and plays at Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre for just THREE special preview performances before opening in 2020.
When eight-year-old Jonah phones a Seattle radio show and gets his dad, Sam, to talk live on air about the heart-breaking loss of his mother, Sam instantly touches hearts across America. Nearly 3,000 miles away, journalist Annie starts to ask herself whether Sam could be more than just a great news story. It looks like love is in the airwaves, but how do you know if he’s the one for you if you’ve never even met?
Perhaps only a last-minute dash to the top of the Empire State Building can prove that somewhere there’s someone for everyone...
Starring Kimberley Walsh and Michael D. Xavier, Sleepless is directed by Morgan Young with a book by Michael Burdette and two new British writers - music by Robert Scott and lyrics by Brendan Cull. Morgan Large designs and this new musical romance is beautifully brought to life with a full cast and orchestra.
I love the film Sleepless in Seattle so when I heard of this show, I was very keen to see it. I felt the first half was a little woolly! It needed to be louder, the bit with Walter sneezing etc was not clear - only because I had seen the film I Understood what was happening. I thought Sam and that side of characters were firm and added much to the show!
Dated, long, boring, lack of movement, average sets, all in all not great. On the plus side, the singers could sing, and made the best of dull lyrics. Very disappointing!
