The Making of a Monster: an Anatomy of Musical Flops is presented by Christopher Howell

West End Wonder or Flop? Even when blessed with a timely topic, willing investors, a team of top creatives and popular appeal, a musical tipped to be a hit can flounder. Others, with the odds seemingly stacked against them, nonetheless thrive. Why do some musicals flourish whilst others fail to. captivate an audience? Christopher Howell explores this vexed question, and takes a candid look behind the scenes of Carrie, Les Misérables and other musicals.

The presenter, actor and director Christopher Howell has worked extensively on the West End as well as in film and television. This presentation is based upon his current research on West End and Broadway musical theatre histories.
