Spring Awakening's Sheik & Michele to Go 'On Stage'

Grammy Award nominated singer-songwriter Duncan Sheik, composer of the acclaimed new musical Spring Awakening, and leading actress Lea Michele will be featured on NY-1's "On Stage" this weekend.

"On Stage" airs on NY-1 on Saturday, July 22nd and Sunday, July 23rd at 9:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. and Monday, July 24th at 12:30 a.m. and 9:30 p.m.

With music by Duncan Sheik, book and lyrics by Steven Sater, direction byMichael Mayer and choreography by Bill T. Jones, the musical began its world premiere engagement Off-Broadway at Atlantic Theater Company on May 19 and opened on June 15, 2006. Spring Awakening continues its extended engagement through Saturday, August 5, 2006 and will move to Broadway next season.

Spring Awakening features a cast of thirteen led by Tony Award-winner Frank Wood (Side Man, Hollywood Arms), Atlantic founding member Mary McCann (Broadway's The Old Neighborhood, ATC's The Night Heron), John Gallagher Jr. (Rabbit Hole), Jonathan Groff (In My Life), Lea Michele (Fiddler on the Roof) and Skylar Astin, Lilli Cooper, Gideon Glick, Brian Johnson, Lauren Pritchard, Phoebe Strole, Jonathan B. Wright and Remy Zaken.

Based on Frank Wedekind's masterpiece The Awakening of Spring, Spring Awakening "is the contemporary musical adaptation of one of literature's most controversial plays. The musical boldly depicts a dozen young people and how they make their way through the thrilling, complicated, confusing and mysterious time of their sexual awakening. Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater's score features songs that illuminate the urgency of adolescent self-discovery, the burning intensity of teen friendships and the innate suspicion of the uncomprehending adult world. The story centers around a brilliant young student named Melchior (Groff), his troubled friend Moritz (Gallagher Jr.) and Wendla (Michele), a beautiful young girl on the verge of womanhood," state press notes.

Spring Awakening plays Friday at 8 p.m., Saturday at 2 p.m. & 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3:00 p.m. As of Monday, July 24th, the show will play Monday – Friday at 8 p.m. with Saturday matinees at 2:00 p.m. All tickets are $60.00 and available by calling Telecharge at 212-239-6200 or visiting
