My favourite Twitter # is #SongsForTheMargaretFultonMusical. I wish I could take credit for "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Sandwich" or "Big Girls Don't Fry", but the best I could do was "Lettuce Be".
If you haven't heard, there really is a musical about Margaret Fulton, it's on at Theatre Works and the preview audiences are loving it.
Margaret Fulton: Queen of the Dessert was written by Doug Mcleod (who is one of my favourite children's and YA writers, here's his site – get his books for kids you know, but read them yourself first) and composed by Yuri Worontschak (whom I don't know, yet), and Doug especially has formed a friendship with the cooking superstar, who, rumour says, will be at opening night.
Here's a terrific interview in the Theatre Works newsletter that went out today.
There's still some $25 preview tickets available for Tuesday's performance or it runs until December 1.
