Writing Lab

Another brilliant night at Writing Lab - an MMD Workshop run by Christine Denniston, which I always feel very lucky to be a part of.

We met in a fantastic space just by Bond Street Station - called the The Music Studios.  They are studios for musicians to go and practise and rehearse and every room has a grand piano in it.   There is a link to their website HERE

James Lovelock brought in a scene from his musical Sunshine Guy, which has recently had a production at Birmingham University and a transfer to the Landor Theatre, but he is still refining the show and we read a scene and he sang one of the absolutely beautiful songs.

Karl Miller and Chris Ash presented only the music for a musical they are working on.  They wanted to find out what we got from the music - and wonderfully our feedback was very much what they had hoped.

I brought in a scene from Capture which I had added a character to and moved another, only the day before.   The feedback was really helpful, the dynamics of the scene had changed a lot from this switch and I felt that it had improved so will be keeping it this way for the moment.

Karl, Chris, Christine and Tim Connor and I all went off to a Lebanese cafe afterwards to talk about life, musical theatre and everything - which is always a very important part of the evening!
