Words by Léna Fontaine
11 years after the UK production of Spring Awakening closed in London, the original cast joined forces to perform a special edition of the show’s anthem “Mama Who Bore Me”.
The video features Lucy May Barker as Ilse, Natasha Barnes as Anna, Hayley Gallivan as Marta, Evelyn Hoskins as Thea and Charlotte Wakefield as the title role of Wendla.
The first London production began January 23, 2009 at the Lyric Hammersmith, transferred to the Novello Theatre on March 21, 2009, and closed on May 30, 2009. It won four Laurence Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical.
