Jay McGuinness and Kimberley Walsh lead cast announced for Sleepless the Musical

After performing together in Big the musical last year Jay McGuiness and Kimberley Walsh are to reunite and star as Sam and Annie in Sleepless the Musical at Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre from 24th March with an official opening night on 1st April. It is currently booking until 3rd May.

Theo Collis, Mikey Colville and Jack Reynolds will share the role of Jonah.

Based on iconic romantic comedy film Sleepless in Seattle starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan , Sleepless features a sparkling jazz-inspired score.When eight-year-old Jonah phones a Seattle radio show and gets his dad, Sam, to talk live on air about the heart-breaking loss of his mother, Sam instantly touches hearts across America. Nearly 3,000 miles away, journalist Annie starts to ask herself whether Sam could be more than just a great news story. It looks like love is in the airwaves, but how do you know if he’s the one for you if you’ve never even met?  Perhaps only a last-minute dash to the top of the Empire State Building can prove that somewhere there’s someone for everyone...

The new musical has a book by Michael Burdett, music by Robert Scott and lyrics by Brendan Cull,
The production will be directed by Morgan Young (Big), with set design by Morgan Large, costume design by Sue Simmerling, lighting by Tim Lutkin, video design by Ian William Galloway, sound design by Avgoustos Psillas and Terry Jardine for Autograph, orchestrations by Larry Blank, musical supervision and direction by Stuart Morley, wig and hair design by Richard Mawbey and casting by Sarah Bird and Michael Donovan.
