Doris Day’s Sentimental Journey Musical

The  Hollywood legend Doris Day has provided the inspiration for the bio-musical, “Sentimental Journey” which tells her life story takes its title from her first number one chart hit.

The musical will run for four weeks from 11th March to 4th April,2010 (previews from 9th March) at Wilton’s Music Hall which is in East London near Tower Bridge and St. Katherine's Dock. It was originally performed last spring at the Mill at Sonning.

Doris Day’s story is a fascinating one: described as a vivacious blonde with a wholesome image many do not realise what a  tough time she had with a car accident when she was just 13 threatening to end her dancing career, and by the time she was 17 she was married to a psychopathic bully. When her third husband died she discovered he had left her with a debt of half a million dollars.

A Sentimental Journey tells her  story, featuring many of the most famous songs including “Move Over Darling”, “The Deadwood Stage”, “Secret Love”, “Little Girl Blue”  “Que Sera Sera”, “Young at Heart” and of course “Sentimental Journey”.

Sally Hughes stars at Doris Day with West End performers Glyn Kerslake, Ian McLarnon, Elizabeth Elvin and Mark Halliday also in the cast.
