Sleepless, a romantic musical comedy based on the film Sleepless In Seattle is to have its London premiere at Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre in March 2020.

Sleepless musical London

Sleepless is the enchanting new romantic musical comedy based on the original story and screenplay of the romcom classic Sleepless In Seattle. Sleepless tells the heart-warming tale of Sam, who moves to Seattle with his eight-year-old son, Jonah, following the tragic death of his wife.  When Jonah phones a radio show, Sam is forced to talk about his broken heart and sleepless nights live on air, and he suddenly finds himself one of the most sought after single men in America and a great news story for feisty journalist Annie on the opposite side of the country. Can Jonah bring the two together on the top deck of the Empire State Building?  A fresh and lively book alongside a brand-new musical score brings this most timeless of romantic comedies to life on stage. Performances begin from Saturday 21 March 2020, but there will be three reduced-price previews on 13th and 14th December 2019. Tickets for these special performances are on sale now.
