Nearly a century ago, in 1914, Charlie Chaplin invented his tramp character. Not long before that date, in 1908, the celebrated Italian writer Luigi Pirandello had published an essay entitled L’umorismo (“humour”), referring to a quality that is something rather more than comedy: by way of laughter the contradictions of real life and the truth behind the mask are revealed. Ours is an age of humour, but it is also an age that has seen a renewed awareness of musical theatre, a time when the genre is being re-interpreted in the light of an increasingly complex and sophisticated exploration of the reasons behind it.
