Why See Sleepless?

A musical romance

London gets a taste of Seattle when this new musical adaptation of Nora Ephron's iconic nineties romance movie arrives in March. Following years of speculation, Sleepless will receive its world premiere at the Troubador Wembley Park Theatre with Jay McGuiness and Kimberly Walsh starring as Sam and Annie.

What's the story?

Widowed architect Sam lives a lonely existence with his young son Jonah on Lake Washington, who is desperate for his father to find love again. One late night, Jonah secretly calls a radio phone-in show to share his father's plight with any potential new mothers out there.

The response is huge, as Seattle's womenfolk all vie to find out who Sam is, and win his heart. Meanwhile in Baltimore, a young intrepid journalist Annie comes across the story and decides to head to Seattle herself - despite having a fiance herself! Will Sam and Annie ever meet, and will they actually fall in love?
