CRITICAL ACCLAIM


"..the songs are incredibly witty...” – Musical Theatre  Review


My Marcello– “Luckily the album comes with an insert booklet that has a synopsis of the storyline and the lyrics to the songs, this adds to the fun as the beautiful score is driven by the narrative and you need to keep up. Some of the songs are incredibly witty, for example ‘Rest in Peas’, a song about keeping a body in the freezer, which I had to listen to a couple of times as it cracked me up so much.”
