Tell Me On A Sunday extends 5 weeks to 14 Feb 04
Andrew Lloyd Webber's Tell Me On A Sunday has been extended 5 weeks to 14 Feb 2004 at the Gielgud. This will be the final extension as the RSC's "All's Well That Ends Well" transfers to the theatre on the 18 Feb 04
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.
Tell Me On A Sunday stars Denise Van Outen (Julie-Alanah Brighten performs at all Thursday & Sat Matinees).
The show 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."
