Moonshadow – video interview and show footage

We captured the first glimpses of Moonshadow last week at the Princess Theatre Melbourne at a special media event. Starring Gareth Keegan and Gemma-Ashley Kaplan (both featured in the video) the show features 40 songs penned by Cat Stevens including ‘Father and Son’, ‘Wild World’ and ‘Moonshadow’

We also had a chat with cast Members Matt Holly and Jolyon James about working with Yusuf (Cat Stevens) on the development of this brand new musical.
