An interview with The Marlowe revolves around how director Conor McPherson had no experience with directing a musical prior to this venture and found himself delighting in the newfound experience. He shares that when it comes to a straight play, the dilemma lies in holding the viewers' attention merely through the dialogue and acting. However, in a musical, there come times where someone might suggest, “Shall we have a refreshing pause for everyone's benefit?” and you'd gladly agree, thinking it sounds quite fascinating.
