‘Putting them through their paces’ can be a fairly casual phrase. But HOAX PART 1 is an extremely physical piece of theatre, and Benji is an extremely physical piece of director! There was sweat. There were tears. And by the end of the day I think we all felt the pain!
Actually it was an amazing opportunity for all the applicants to get even a short chance to work with Benji, who is, without a doubt, a true genius. It was an absolute pleasure to observe the man at work – and I can predict with complete confidence that this musical is going to be UTTERLY MIND BLOWING in every sense.
