Sleeping Beauty Wakes, the new musical from the creators of the pop-rock holiday musical Striking 12, will begin previews at the McCarter Theatre in Princeton, NJ, April 29 and run through June 5. The production will then transfer to California's La Jolla Playhouse July 19 – Aug. 21.


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.
