SPRING AWAKENING Manila Introduces New Faces
The Philippine premiere of Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater's Tony award-winning rock musical "Spring Awakening" will feature new actors Miguel Mendoza and Kelly Frances Lati when the production opens on September 25, 2009 at the Carlos P.Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza in Makati City.
With this is mind, Kelly has begun exploring Wendla more thoroughly in readings, research, and rehearsals -- a mark of a true musical theater professional.
"Spring Awakening" Manila will be staged by Atlantis Productions, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary, under the direction of Chari Arespacochaga (Altar Boyz, Avenue Q). The production is made possible through a special licensing agreement with its Broadway producers Ira Pittleman, Tom Hulce, Jeffrey Richards and Jerry Frankel.
"Spring Awakening" is based on the controversial 1891 play of the same title by Frank Wedekind. Set in the late 19th century Germany, the musical tackles the concerns of young adults who are exploring their human sexuality.
"Spring Awakening" on Broadway opened at the Eugene O'Neil Theater on December 10, 2006. The show went on to win eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, in 2007.
