Tell Me on a Sunday
First there was Evita, then there was Emma. After writing the epic Evita, Andrew Lloyd Webber changed gears a bit. He teamed up with Don Black, the Academy Award-winning lyricist of "Born Free," to put together the light-hearted romantic comedy Tell Me on a Sunday. It's the story of an English girl named Emma who comes to New York with stars in her eyes but ends up being put through the emotional wringer in her search for true love. Rachel Landon, artistic director for Standing Room Only Productions, stars in this independent production. “I have always dreamed of producing this show since I lived through something akin to Emma’s story,” Landon says via e‑mail. “It reflects the story of the countless other young people who come to New York, a city of dreams, to find new lives, and find that although it is the most amazing, most romantic and most eccentric city in the world, it can also be the cruelest, and an easy place to lose yourself.” 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Through July 7. -Obsidian Art Space, 3522 White Oak. For information, call 713-300-2358 or visit www.sro--productions.com. $22.
