Craig Revel Horwood

Stepping out of judging Strictly Come Dancing and back into directing, Craig Revel Horwood interrupts rehearsals to talk about why he sees more dynamic talent on the British stage than in many a TV talent show contest. Working with Tony Award winning orchestrator Sarah Travis, he is reviving his 2006 hit Hot Mikado which tours the UK later in 2009.

In the interview, Craig Revel Horwood explains that for his version of Hot Mikado, he has made radical changes to the all-black 1930's reworking of Gilbert and Sullivan's famous 1895 comic tale. No "Three Little Maids from School" here but rather a strip tease homage to Gypsy Rose Lee.

And never one to be low key in anything, he tells Nicola Barranger that for this version, there is no such thing as "over the top".
