“It was a very hard show to do every night, emotionally. I remember one night, coming off stage covered in sweat - Jonathan’s, not mine - tears, probably some blood somewhere, and I just said, ‘Ugh, I just wanna do a comedy!’”—Lea on Spring Awakening (x)
It’s been seven whole years since the off-Broadway premiere of Spring Awakening, the youth-oriented musical that became a Tony-winning Broadway musical hit and introduced the world to such breakout stars as Lea Michele (Glee), Jonathan Groff (Frozen), and John Gallagher Jr. (Newsroom).
Now, the Atlantic Theatre Company has reassembled the entire original cast to launch a new social-media campaign, ATC Uncovered, which aims to connect fans to the inner-workings of the off-Broadway company. In addition to the the exclusive video below, in which Michele and Groff recall the first performances of Spring Awakening in ATC’s tiny 199-seat theater, the program will include a live-stream Facebook Q&A event with the cast on Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. ET, hosted by original castmate Brian Charles Johnson.
“This is where our love blossomed,” Michele and Groff say of the reunion, captured in this exclusive video clip.
