Tell Me On A Sunday

I went to the opening night of Tell Me On A Sunday at Her Majesty’s Theatre.

I didn’t know what to expect, all I knew was that it was being marketed as a sex in the city musical with the score by Andrew Lloyd Webber

It turns out to be the story of a single girl who moves from Sydney to New York to find herself

It’s a one woman show

Which would be fine if she wasn’t conversing with character’s who you can’t see!

It just made her look like a schizophrenic singing to herself and having conversations with people who don’t exist

The song about speed dating made me want to plug my ears with the free Guillain chocolates we were handed at the door

I felt bad for Jolene Anderson, she’d just been in a car accident and lost a co-star

I don’t want to be harsh, but the simple fact is, she didn’t have the presence to carry off the show

It was a large theatre and a large concept

It just didn’t work

She didn’t have the experience to project her voice with enough guts and quality as the production required

A good concept that just didn’t work in the real world, I think I would have enjoyed it more if the other characters had existed!
