Julie-Alanah Brighten will perform all Matinees in "Tell Me On A Sunday" from 22 Sep 03

It has been announced that Julie-Alanah Brighten will now perform all matinees in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Tell Me On A Sunday from 22 Sep 03. Initially, she was only going to perform the Thursday matinees.

As prevously mentioned Julie-Alanah Brighten will replace Denise Van Outen for all performances for 3 weeks 1 - 20 Sep 03, while Van Outen is on holiday.

Also note there will be no performances of the show 25th to 30 Aug 03

Julie-Alanah Brighten's London stage credits include "Disney Beauty and the Beast" at the Dominion Theatre in 1997; "La Cava The Musical" at the Victoria Palace & Piccadilly Theatres in 2000; "The Full Monty" at the Prince of Wales Theatre in 2002.

The show, which is currently taking bookings to 10 Jan 2004 at the Gielgud Theatre, opened in April this year to luke-warm notices from the popular press: THE GUARDIAN says, "Although it has some good songs, it seems a slight piece that is scarcely rendered more plausible by the presence of the sassy, sexy Denise Van Outen." THE INDEPENDENT says, "Lloyd Webber's music is laughably trite. Van Outen seems a nice girl, but her singing and acting are very average." THE TIMES says, " She’s [Van Outen] at her best when Don Black’s often adroit, witty lyrics allow her to be sharp, funny and derisive about men." THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "It's trite, it's sentimental, it is profoundly second-rate." THE EVENING STANDARD says, "It feels old. Without Van Outen, I suspect it would feel even older."

Tell Me On A Sunday became a best-selling album on its release in 1979 and was subsequently staged as part of "Song & Dance" at the Palace Theatre in 1981.

Tell Me On A Sunday has been expanded and reworked for this new production to provide a full evening in the theatre.

The show has music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Don Black, with additional contributions by Jackie Clune. It is directed by Matthew Warchus.
