Alice in Funderland

Alice in Funderland is not only that rare bird – a new Irish musical but also the first musical to be performed in the Abbey Theatre in over 20 years. THISISPOPBABY‘s Phillip McMahon (book & lyrics) joined me on The Musical Hour this week with a playlist of musical tunes that have inspired him over the years as well as chatting about the production of Alice. We had loads of fun recording this and you can listen to the entire one hour show here:

With the Irish Twittersphere all aflutter over street fundraisers I hit the streets of Dublin to see if I could chug a chugger.
