0486: Appreciating Verbatim

Thos looks at the newest genre of musical theatre, the verbatim musical, made famous by the Royal National Theatre’s much lauded production of London Road, and asks if it subverts Sondheim’s axiom about content dictating form.  Also included is a conversation with the people behind Untold Wars: A New Verbatim Musical which uses the format in a different but equally powerful way.   If Grease is the word, then verbatim musicals are the word-for-word!
