The Talented Mr. Mills

There's no question that Peter Mills know how to put together the elements of a musical about as well as anyone working today. I just wish I liked the sum of those parts a bit more. His newest: a revival of his accomplished Illyria; my review is here. (I felt similarly impressed and frustrated by The Flood a few years back.) I'm actually amazed that he and Cara Reichel haven't yet been snapped up to do a big new movical adaptation, but then, maybe that's not on their agenda. Either way, Mills remains someone worth watching (and listening to).
