SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE THE MUSICAL centers around Sam, a widower and single father. When Sam's son, Jonah calls into a talk radio program looking for a new mother, Sam ends up getting on the phone and laments about his lost love. Thousands of miles away in Baltimore, Annie hears the program and immediately falls in love with Sam, despite the fact that she has never met him and that she is engaged to another man. Believing they are meant to be together, Annie sets out for Seattle to meet Sam, who, meanwhile, contends with an onslaught of letters from available women equally touched by his phone call.

Featuring a sparkling musical score by Ben Toth and Sam Forman, a new stage adaptation by Academy Award-nominee Jeff Arch, musical staging by Emmy Award-winner Spencer Liff ("So You Think You Can Dance"), and directed by Sheldon Epps, this world premiere presentation will bring one of the most beloved romantic comedies of all time to life on The Playhouse stage. SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE THE MUSICAL is based on the award-winning film, which was listed by the American Film Institute (AFI) as one of the Top 10 Best Romantic Comedies.
