I've always sort of thought that the tunes on 'Sex & Travel' could be the core
of a cool Cold War musical (like 'Chess' but without the boring bits). In "Holiday", the guy is obviously MI5 or MI6. "Pres Reagan's Birthday Present",
a bring the house down dance number to close Act 1. "Red Pets"/"Only A Rumour",
love ineterest for our hero. "What's The Matter, Boy?", awkward sidekick comic
relief. "Walk with the Devil". "Walk with the Devil", our hero goes over to the
other side, or does he? "Down the Drain" tragic denouement or false ending? "Big Saturday" uplifting, hopeful, real finale?

All we need is a real story and characters to match the tunes!
