Our Man In Havana Review Roundup

Richard Hough and Ben Frost have taken the monumental task of adapting Graham Greene’s classic spy comedy thriller into a musical. By most accounts, it’s an enormous success:

The Guardian:
“this show enjoyably and intelligently distils Greene’s lasting truths about lying.”

Wokingham Today:
“Ben Frost and Richard Hough have done a superb job of taking a comedic novel from the 50s and adapting it into the format of a modern musical.”

“Now, as a new global crisis threatens, can a musical based on Greene’s prescient tale find its moment? The answer is a resounding ‘yes’. Richard Hough’s witty book and lyrics and Ben Morales Frost’s music conjure up a real period feel and the exotic gaiety of the island playground of the rich and famous”

Our Man In Havana runs at the Watermill Theatre until 21st May.
