I'd love it if it were set to music verbatim, like London Road.
Me is directing again - Private Peaceful at the Charles Cryer Theatre, Carshalton, 23 to 26 April 2014.

At a guess, I'd say it would be a piss-take show rather than something real, which could be interesting. We shall have to wait and see.

Taking something low brow and making it high brow was done successfully with Jerry Springer the Opera, so with the right team it could be interesting. Maybe.

Oh dear god. The death of the musical.
If I stay awake, it must be good.
