Yes, the Broadway production of “Spring Awakening” had a terrific score, intense choreography and edgy direction. It also had a charming, smart, searching, compelling young actor in the lead role. A few years older now, that actor, Jonathan Groff, has broadened his appeal playing Jessie St. James on TV’s “Glee,” while also hitting the cabarets. On these smaller stages, he’s as likely to be heard singing a Stevie Wonder or Joni Mitchell song as he is to be singing a Broadway tune. Details here.
