- We be­lieved that we had some­thing good and we cer­tainly had hopes for it. It be­gan at the Tra­verse in Ed­in­burgh as part of the fes­ti­val which proved to be a very good showcase. It was an ex­tra­or­di­nary phe­nom­e­non that the re­view­ers all liked it, or re­ally liked it, and I re­mem­ber think­ing at the time “there’s real magic” in this.

Of course, the next thing we did was trans­fer to the West End and that was that. But, to be hon­est, when we started off we had an agenda, and that was to get it to the States, but off Broad­way, if you know what I mean.
