'Spring Awakening': Lea Michele, Jonathan Groff, and original cast reunite -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO


It’s been seven whole years since the off-Broadway premiere of Spring Awakening, the youth-oriented musical that became a Tony-winning Broadway musical hit and introduced the world to such breakout stars as Lea Michele (Glee), Jonathan Groff (Frozen), and John Gallagher Jr. (The Newsroom).

Now, the Atlantic Theatre Company has reassembled the entire original cast to launch a new social-media campaign, ATC Uncovered, which aims to connect fans to the inner-workings of the off-Broadway company. In addition to the the exclusive video below, in which Michele and Groff recall the first performances of Spring Awakening in ATC’s tiny 199-seat theater, the program will include a live-stream Facebook Q&A event with the cast on Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. ET, hosted by original castmate Brian Charles Johnson.

“This is where our love blossomed,” Michele and Groff say of the reunion, captured in this exclusive video clip. It’s really an amazing thing to watch these twentysomethings rekindle their friendship. Watch below, and prepare to have your “Totally F—ed” memories come flooding back!

Newsroom star, Broadway vet, and now indie film darling John Gallagher Jr. may be moving on from Alison Pill’s Maggie in this season of The Newsroom, but he’s still a little hung up on childhood crush Marisa Tomei, as he reveals in the Pop Culture Personality Test below. He even wrote her a fan letter way back when!

His new film Short Term 12 is garnering huge buzz in the indie film world. It focuses on a couple (Gallagher Jr and Brie Larson) who work together at a home for at-risk youth. As Gallagher reveals in the interview below, it was another recent indie that made him cry — the moving Fruitvale Station.
