An interview with The Marlowe revolves around how director Conor McPherson had not been familiar with the direction of a musical prior to this venture and found himself enjoying in the novel experience. He highlights that when it comes to a straight production, the difficulty lies in keeping the audience engaged solely through the dialogue and acting. However, in a musical, there are moments where someone might advise, “Shall we have a refreshing pause for everyone's benefit?” and you'd positively accept, thinking it sounds quite appealing.
