THE SCREENING ROOM: Jonathan Groff Sings From Spring Awakening, Wild Party, Last Five Years, Piazza in Solo Concert (Video)
17 Oct 2012
Tony Award nominee Jonathan Groff, who originated the role of radical teenager Melchior in Broadway's Spring Awakening, went solo Oct. 13 at The Cabaret at the Columbia Club in Indianapolis. Here are highlights from the show.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
