And for those who don't want to miss a moment of our evening with Neil, here's the full, unedited version of his reading and his conversation with Virginia.
This version contains graphic language, on-stage gaffes, and other unpolished content you might expect from an unedited stage production. It should be noted that both this version and the broadcast version were largely scored by Neil Gaiman himself, who made requests for specific songs by his wife, Amanda Palmer, and his good friend Tori Amos.
A special thanks to WOM intern Hanna Goldberg, without whom this complex production would not have gone as well...she is a true Gaiman fan, and as such, composed thoughtful questions, wrote a pithy and hilarious blog about her experience, and helped filter through the hundreds of questions submitted by members of the audience, some of whom simply wanted to know what Neil Gaiman smelled like up close.
(He smelled great, by the way.)
