Watch Kimberley Walsh and Jay McGuiness perform Are You Looking Up from new musical Sleepless

Watch Jay McGuiness and Kimberley Walsh showcase a song from new musical Sleepless.

Inspired by the iconic film Sleepless in Seattle, Sleepless will run at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre this summer.

The production will play from August 25 running through to September 27, 2020 with a social distanced audience. Tickets are on sale now here.

The cast will be led by Jay McGuiness as Sam and Kimberley Walsh as Annie, reuniting after starring in Big the Musical last year.

Ahead of opening night, you can watch the pair performing Are You Looking Up from the new musical in the video below…

Based on the screenplay of the iconic film, Sleepless tells the story of Sam who moves to Seattle with his eight-year-old son Jonah following the death of his wife.

A synopsis teases: “When Jonah phones a radio show, Sam is forced to talk about his broken heart and sleepless nights live on air, and he suddenly finds himself one of the most sought after single men in America and a great news story for feisty journalist Annie on the opposite side of the country.

“Can Jonah bring the two together on the top deck of the Empire State Building? A fresh and lively book alongside a brand-new musical score bring this most timeless of romantic comedies to life on stage.”

The production is directed by Morgan Young and features a book by Michael Burdette and two new British writers – music by Robert Scott and lyrics by Brendan Cull.
