The new musical, according to La Jolla Playhouse, is about "a young beauty [who] is brought to a sleep disorder clinic, and soon all the patients find themselves sharing a familiar dream. With beguiling characters, hypnotic lyrics, and a rocking score, Sleeping Beauty Wakes delves into the magical space between dreaming and waking in a delightful twist on a classic tale."
The cast and the creative team of the musical talk about re-working the production that was seen in a 2007 world-premiere co-production by Center Theatre Group and Deaf West Theatre. The actors describe the different themes of the production and how they relate to the classic fairytale; they also offer a glimpse into their demanding rehearsal process.
