Why see Sleepless The Musical in London?
The Sleepless stage musical is based on the smash-hit, 1990 rom-com Sleepless in Seattle, which managed to steal the hearts of millions with its moving, romantic story and grossed $227.9 million at the global box office on just a $21 million budget. The musical follows widower Sam and his ten-year-old son Jonah, who move to Seattle after his wife tragically passes away. When Sam his forced by Jonah to talk on a radio talk-show, he spills his heart out live on air. The next day, he suddenly becomes the most sought after single man in America. Will he fall for Annie, the feisty journalist who lives on the east coast? In this tale of two cities, Seattle and New York City unite this unlikely couple's budding romance.
But is Sleepless: A Musical Romance any good?
Having only run at the Troubadour for three performances last year (13 & 14 December 2019 at 7.30pm, 2.30pm and 7.30pm), the show has already amassed critical acclaim from audiences, despite not very many reviews being published. Theatregoers have praised the production's "brilliant singing and music", "clever lighting effects", and "beautiful scenery." The script has also been lauded for remaining as close to the original source material as possible, with a few small changes here and there, including replacing Jonah's friend with a friend of Sam's. The remaining changes you'll just have to wait and see for yourself!
