It has been announced that the scheduled world premiere of Sleepless, a musical based on the film Sleepless in Seattle, has been postponed.

A statement released today said the show has been delayed due to 'an illness within the producer’s family and overwhelming unexpected circumstances'. It goes on to say that the producers 'hope to have further news of the future of the production next year.'

The production, which has a book by Michael Burdett, music by Robert Scott and lyrics by Brendan Cull, was due to feature Strictly Come Dancing star Danny Mac and West End leading lady Carley Stenson, and was set to open at Theatre Royal Plymouth on 1 April before touring to Manchester and Dublin.
