November at Worthing Theatres begins with a rare opportunity to see Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black’s musical Tell Me on a Sunday remodelled for Claire Sweeney.
The legendary composer and lyricist have created an exclusive new song for Claire entitled I Still Believe in Love, creating what they consider to be the definitive version of the classic show.
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 also features a wonderful score and the chart topping hits Take That Look Off Your Face, Unexpected Song and the title track Tell Me on a Sunday.
Tell Me on a Sunday tells of the romantic misadventures of a young English girl newly arrived in New York. Brimming with optimism, she seeks success, companionship 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 has been looking for love in all the wrong places.
Claire Sweeney is one of the UK’s best-loved personalities with a string of credits to her name on stage and screen. Her career has featured primetime Saturday night television to star roles in London’s West End. She first gained acclaim on television in series including Brookside, Clocking Off and Merseybeat. Presenting roles have included 60 Minute Makeover, Loose Women, and Here Comes the Sun. She has also taken part in Strictly Come Dancing and Celebrity Come Dine with Me.
In the West End Claire’s roles have included Roxie Hart in Chicago and Miss Adelaide opposite Patrick Swayze in the award-winning production of Guys and Dolls. She headlined in Fosse: The World Tour and starred in the first ever UK Production of the musical Shout! which visited Worthing. She has also performed duets with international opera stars Bryn Terfel and Jose Carreras at The Royal Albert Hall.
