There are plenty of reasons for the cast of The Musical to be in their seats this weekend, and it looks like one of them is that they’ve all been reading the script for a while now.

According to EW, The Musical is a musical based on a short story by the late Neil Gaiman, and many of the characters are from his novels.

EW’s sources claim the cast read the book in person at the Broadway Theatre of Cleveland on Sunday, and that it was a fun experience for them.

The Broadway show is set to open at the Royal Court Theatre in London on April 30, with the film directed by Tom Hooper and starring Mark Ruffalo.
