FIRST LOOK: Live Theater is slowly making a comeback out in the UK. We are so excited to share with all of you the debut of the new B-Roll trailer of Sleepless-The New Musical (the musical adaptation of the iconic romantic flick Sleepless in Seattle). Under the direction of Morgan Young and featuring a 12 piece band, the cast will be led by….
Acclaimed West End and pop star Kimberley Walsh as newly engaged news reporter "Annie Reed" (the Meg Ryan Role),
Daniel Casey (TV's Midsomer Murders) as the newly engaged but offish "Walter Jackson" (the Bill Pullman role),
As previously announced, this production will play London's Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre from August 25th, 2020 though September 27th, 2020.
Also, since we are STILL in this continuation of this weird and uncertain time of the pandemic, this limited engagement of SLEEPLESS will be doing SOCIAL DISTANT audiences only. Even though the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre is huge, the auditorium will sadly not have fully SOLD OUT crowds. All seats will be spread out 6 feet apart. Plus, everyone who enters the Theater will BOTH be inspected and will have to WEAR A MASK for the entire run of the performance.
For everyone working on the production, there have frequent COVID-19 testings during rehearsals and will continue to happen for the entire engagement. The SLEEPLESS company has been using a brand new system called FRANKD (abbreviated for Fast, Reliable, Accurate, Nucleic-based Kit for Covid19 Diagnostic Detection). All involved will have a swap test with their results coming from everyone's phones via a secure app within an hour of the swab being taken.
Break a leg to the entire cast, crew, musicians, and creative team of SLEEPLESS. Have a safe and healthy run.
