I'm so excited to announce that I will be directing Main Street Players' production of SPRING AWAKENING, the eight-time Tony Award®-winning musical by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater! This is my second directoral effort & it brings me back together with an awesome friend & one of the most talented guys I know, musical director Andrew Gilbert, whom I worked with for RENT in 2012.
If you don't know much about SPRING AWAKENING, it is based on the play of the same name originally written by Frank Wedekind in 1891. SPRING AWAKENING is a story of teenage self-discovery and sexuality under the repressive and provincial backdrop of late 19th century Germany. The complex honesty of this show is what I love most about it and I'm hoping we do proper justice to such a masterpiece!
The production will play at the Main Street Playhouse in Miami Lakes September 26 - October 12, 2014: Fridays & Saturdays at 8:00 PM, Sundays at 2:00 PM. Tickets may be purchased online at mainstreetplayers.com, at the box office (not recommended as seats do go quickly), or by calling 305.558.3737.
Just a note: SPRING AWAKENING does contain mature themes, sexual situations and strong language. I wouldn't recommend it for younger audiences, so parents...consider yourselves warned! Hope to see you there.
