In my quest to get feedback on the new show I emailed my old mentor and director from 'Possessed', Clive Paget. Clive now lives in Sydney, Australia. It was very good to feel connected to him again even though he lives so far away and he has agreed to read the book and listen to the new songs. He hasn't read the novel that the musical is adapted from, but perhaps this is a good thing, on first reading, because his judgement of the show, as a musical standing on its own, won't be clouded by the foreknowledge of the book.
Before Clive went off to work in Australia he was the Musical Theatre Consultant at the National Theatre, providing a link between the National Theatre Studio and Greenwich Theatre, where our first showing of 'Possessed' was staged.
