The Boy in the Dress into a musical, he said: "I was thrilled. What I didn't know at that stage was that it was going to be a musical… I was amazed that Robbie Williams and Guy Chambers were interested. The theme of the story is really different, the theme is really different… It's about being boring if we're all the same, and differences are something we should celebrate… I hope audiences are amused because I do like making people laugh, but I hope they feel touched and emotional too… I think it's quite a moving story and often in surprising places."
