Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s smash-hit musical Tell Me On A Sunday comes to Sheffield from Monday 9 to Saturday 14 May starring TV and West End favourite Claire Sweeney.

Tell Me On A Sunday charts the romantic misadventures of a young English girl in New York. Brimming with optimism, she seeks success and 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 she’s been looking for love in all the wrong places.

The classic musical, with a wonderful original score, features the chart topping song Take That Look Off Your Face and the title track Tell Me on A Sunday. Remodeled for Claire Sweeney by the masters of musical theatre, with an exclusive new song Dreams Never Run on Time, this is the definitive version for 2011.

In 2010 Claire Sweeney stepped into this celebrated role to rave reviews and sell-out audiences. Claire is best known for playing Lindsay Corkhill in Channel Four’s Brookside. As well as appearing on our screens in Celebrity Big Brother, 60 Minute Makeover and new BBC drama Candy Cabs, Claire is also well-known to musical theatre audiences with a celebrated career on the stage. In the West End, she has played Roxie Hart in Chicago and Miss Adelaide in Guys and Dolls as well as lead roles in the tours of and Shout! And Fosse.
