Midnight in Paris

Midnight in Paris: The Musical!

This week we're joined by our first married couple, Producer Radha Mamidipudi and Musical Director and Composer Alex Beetschen to chat about the Owen Wilson vehicle Midnight in Paris. The film follows a successful screenwriter trying to make the change to novelist as he enjoys a break in Paris with his fiancée and her disapproving parents. He dreams of Paris in the 1920s until, by a bizarre stroke of luck, he is transported there each night to meet his literary heroes of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein and many more. We quickly decide the best route for this on stage is as a musical and we get to talking about the opulence of the 1920s, dual casting, and making the most of the musical genre.
