An interview with The Marlowe explores how director Conor McPherson had not been familiar with the direction of a musical prior to this mission and found himself enjoying in the refreshing experience. He shares that when it comes to a straight production, the difficulty lies in holding the viewers' attention solely 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 positively accept, thinking it sounds quite charming.
