In / Out

New twist in the plot: Tony Wu has been ‘asked’ to leave the cast. Pan Lili, the actress they have found to play the mother is apparently very good and they want to keep Fay as the father - because she’s also a fine actress.
It’s a shame Tony didn’t seize the opportunity to use the part of the mother to show his acting skills and bring depth to the character instead of discarding it as he did. Maybe he would have changed his mind had he heard the music and understood all the potential of the character. Anyway, I have decided not to worry anymore and go on writing the songs. I just dread writing down the score on paper for the musicians. It takes so long! Maurice Ravel used to start his days copying down a few bars of a Mozart string quartet. Maybe I should do the same!
