Tell Me on a Sunday, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s masterpiece of musical theatre, is to continue its hugely successful tour in 2011 at the Sunderland Empire from 6 to 9 April.

Claire Sweeney stars as a young English girl newly arrived in New York. Brimming with optimism, she seeks success, companionship and, of course, 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 - in fact - she's been looking for love in all the wrong places.

Originally conceived for television starring Marti Webb, Tell Me on a Sunday has been performed by legendary musical theatre stars Sarah Brightman, Lulu and Denise Van Outen. Now Claire Sweeney takes on this celebrated role which features a wonderful score and the chart-topping hit “Take That Look Off Your Face”, “Unexpected Song” and the title track “Tell Me on a Sunday”.

This production has been remodelled for Claire by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black, with an exclusive new song “Dreams Never Run On Time” - this is the definitive version of the classic musical.

Tickets cost between £15.00 and £26.50 and available from the box office or online at the Empire website
