Quote of the week: “When I’m back in New Zealand, I miss Australia. The bush, the trees, the sound and the feel of the place,” says Tim Finn discussing how much he adored writing the music and lyrics for new Australian musical Ladies in Black.
Meanwhile a musical mystery has been solved by director Simon Phillips at a posh morning tea at the Regent Theatre’s Plaza ballroom. The reason the show is called Ladies in Black, and not Women in Black (like the original novel) is due to Google search dragging up the Daniel Radcliffe play Woman in Black for upteen entries when people seek out the show on the internet. Phillips says they realised that if the production team wanted people to be able to find the show – the name change was a must.
And Finn has also revealed that recently, he was the victim of a social media “imposter”. He tweeted:
@timfinnmusic Thanks everyone for spotting the imposter on Facebook. Much appreciated.”
