An interview with The Marlowe dives into how director Conor McPherson had not been familiar with the direction of a musical prior to this project and found himself enjoying in the newfound experience. He highlights that when it comes to a straight play, the difficulty lies in keeping the audience engaged merely through the lines and portrayal. However, in a musical, there come times where someone might suggest, “Shall we have a refreshing pause for everyone's benefit?” and you'd gladly agree, thinking it sounds quite fascinating.
