MADDIE AND US: The story of a lost musical
Shaun McKenna's account is a lively and entertaining read that covers everything from how they constructed the Book, Sondheim's personal input into writing lyrics, how shows are put together out of London and what happens when they transfer. It is a vivid portrait of 1990s theatre, when it was still possible for unknown writers to write an original show and get it as far as a West End stage. It contains a fascinating chapter about the formation of the Mercury Workshop (now Mercury Musical Developments), an organisation dedicated to helping new musical theatre talents emerge.
