A one-woman song cycle that charts the course of a young English girl newly arrived in New York.

Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Lyrics by Don Black

Tell Me on a Sunday follows a young English girl, who has recently landed in New York. Brimming with optimism, she sets out to seek 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.

The show contains some of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most-treasured songs including “Tell Me on a Sunday,” “Come Back with the Same Look in Your Eyes,” and “Nothing Like You’ve Ever Known.”

The intimate one-woman, one-act musical is the perfect showcase for a talented performer to shine.
