Publicity Quote

Some time ago Richard Stilgoe, co-lyricist for Phantom of the Opera, and Lyricist for Starlight Express listened to songs from Olympus, and wrote back commenting on the music. I have been in contact with him again, and he is happy for us to use the quote he made, in the publicity material for the production.

"Very few people can write good tunes - Ian Rae can" - Richard Stilgoe
