Could you tell us the music sounds like after you go to see it, please? :D


I expect someone will report back on the Manchester shows in the summer long before I go in November. But I'll be sure to let you all know what I think come the time. :D

In this interview with BBC Radio's Front Row, Damon describes the songs that he wrote for this musical as somewhere between Lionel Bart and Kurt Vile.

Yes, that was at the end of the Radio Four interview last night. I thought that was interesting. He said wonder.land is much more a traditional musical, whatever that means. Compared to the opera tinged Dr Dee or Monkey I suppose. I'm really fascinated to see what he's done with it anyway. The show's design / production team are the people behind War Horse apparently, so I've got high hopes for a great looking show as well as a great sounding one. Should be something special.

well, he did say kurt veill so can't blame him. but the german way of pronouncing "weill" is with a "V" :P just a bit uninformed i guess... that Kurt Weill, who was a master of opera/musical of the early 20th century would be more likely in conversation about a new musical than Kurt Vile xD
