Strictly finalist heads to the stage

Strictly Come Dancing finalist Danny Mac is to star in a new musical based on Sleepless in Seattle.

Mac will co-star alongside his real-life partner Carley Stenson in the show which will be called Sleepless.

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

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.

The production will open at Theatre Royal Plymouth from 1 to 15 April, followed by a week at The Lowry, Salford, from 25 to 29 April, and finishing at Bord Gais Energy Theatre, Dublin from 2 to 13 May, prior to a West End run.

You can find out more details at the production’s official website.
