-------------------

"The Car Man was my first new show in three years and a lot of people asked me initially, “Why Carmen?”  To be honest, I resisted it for quite a while because there were so many versions of Carmen, both ballet and opera, but I kept listening to the music and the more I listened to it the more I felt that it was the right kind of music for AMP."
