La curiosità mi spinge a volerne saperne di più e David Carter in persona è assolutamente disponibile a rispondere alle mie domande:

What kind of need made you to bring this experience to the British public?
A lot of traditional theatre is now very commercial… I just wanted to create something that was more intimate and experiential. Something that would engage people’s emotions, that would make people think, but would also be wonderfully glamorous and fun to attend.
How did the guests reacted the first time?
At the beginning, we had no idea how people would react to them, but the audience loved them, and we have been doing them for over three years now. Bedtime Story Nights are now firmly established one of the best reviewed events in London, and are generally booked up several months ahead.
The night styiling is often underestimated. Your dressiquette instead is very specific. Tell us about the most weird looks!
We do have a very strict dress code for guests attending the event, but do have a number of prizes to reward people for making an effort!! We want guests to look glamorous as this adds to the general atmosphere, and makes it a more complete experience, but the fact that we insist that guests wear pyjamas and nighties is also helpful in taking them back to a time in their lives when, as children, they first discovered the pleasures of listening to a fantastic story and made that journey in to the world of someone else’s imagination.
David Carter as a child.
Having a childlike sense of wonder about the world is something very important to me.
Bedtime Stories Night will be released out of London boundaries?
We would certainly like to take the magic of these nights to other cities and countries, but the events do already attract a very international audience… we even had someone fly in from California specially last week to attend!!
