Tonight, for the first time since lockdown, a fully staged musical is opening inside a theatre. Sleepless begins previews tonight at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre.

Sleepless musical Lonmdon

Sleepless the musical, based on the original story and screenplay of the romantic comedy classic Sleepless in Seattle, tells the heart-warming tale of Sam, who moves to Seattle with his ten-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 bring this most timeless of romantic comedies to life on stage.
