"My all-time favorite musical. The version for me is and will always be Hal Prince's original production. That beehive drop cloth of English society. Len Cariou, Angela Lansbury, Victor Garber! Lonny Price's magnificent concert version was also seminal – with a magnificent George Hearn, Patti LuPone, Audra McDonald and Neil Patrick Harris.
I have seen four different productions of it, as well as the film version – which I’m sure sets no record, but still. I memorized it growing up, and my stepdaughters were weaned on it. I remember them drawing crayon stick figure Mrs. Lovetts and Sweeney and his razor – which I sent to Steve Sondheim."
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
