Michaelson expressed what her experience has been like writing songs for the musical. “It’s so different when you’re writing for a character, when you’re writing for these other people, than when you’re writing about yourself or your own emotions. So it’s been really interesting and really different for me to write from these perspectives. And just the idea of this undying love and of loss and memory — I can’t stop writing them. I’m going to have too many,” Michaelson explained.
