We had the pleasure of making a show visit to The Grinning Man, currently playing at The Trafalgar Studios. Based on the novel ‘The Man Who Laughs” by Victor Hugo, the musical was created by War Horse director Tom Morris at the Bristol Old Vic. He brought together Tim Philips and Mark Teitler, a book by Carl Grose and all four of them collaborated on the lyrics.

We sat down with Sean Kingsley, Sanne Den Besten and Louis Maskell about how hard it is to place and describe The Grinning Man, the transfer from The Bristol Old Vic, working with puppets and keeping the voice in fine working order in one of toughest sings on stage at the moment.
