What Bud has to say: I would never have thought of kids, a dog and Duncan Sheik in the same sentence, but Duncan's wonderful blend of alternative rock and melancholy, mixed with a taste of the South is extraordinary. Coupled with Nell Benjamin's intelligent book and lyrics, and for the first time in theatre history, a dog being a principal character in the staging, BECAUSE OF WINN DIXIE promises to break new ground in the theatre and provide wonderful family entertainment.
