What to expect

  • New health and safety measures will be in place at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre in line with government advice, as well as advice given by both the World Health Organisation and from Public Health England, regarding COVID-19.
  • Sleepless: A Musical Romance is based on the 1993 romcom Sleepless in Seattle, starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.
  • A recently widowed father tells a radio show about his broken heart and sleepless nights, and becomes the most eligible bachelor in America.
  • The role of Sam (originally Tom Hanks) will be played by Jay McGuiness, best known as being a member of The Wanted and winning Strictly Come Dancing.
  • The role of Annie (originally Meg Ryan) will be played by Kimberley Walsh, most famous as being a member of Girls Aloud.

See this 1993 classic like never before in Sleepless: A Musical Romance - the perfect way to safely head back to the theatre.

Sleepless tells the heart-warming tale of the recently-widowed Sam (McGuiness), who moves to Seattle with his ten-year-old son, Jonah (Daniel Casey). When Jonah phones a radio show, Sam is forced to talk about his deceased wife Maggie, his broken heart and sleepless nights live on air. Women around America are touched by his story and he suddenly finds himself one of the most sought after single men in the country. One of the listeners is Annie Reed (Walsh), a Baltimore Sun reporter who is engaged but feels there is something missing. Can Jonah bring the two together on top of the Empire State Building?

This show is a brilliant way to ease back into watching live theatre. The spacious nature of the venue allows for social distancing measures being strictly obeyed by staff and the audience. You will be temperature checked on entering the building and will be required to wear face masks. Hand sanitiser will be available at multiple locations, and all areas of the venue will be thoroughly deep cleaned after each performance. The venue will be cashless. You will be sent the most up-to-date information before going to a performance, and information is continually being updated on the website, as the theatre works with Society of London Theatre (SOLT) and UK Theatre.
