  • It Might As Well Be Spring

    Brooke Pierce | Musical Stages | December 9, 2006“My show is moving to Broadway — it’s like a dream come true,” enthuses Steven Sater, lyricist and bookwriter of Spring Awakening, which opens at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre on December 10. “I walked through the stage door and it was like, ‘Oh my God.’ I came in, and we’re just standing on this Broadway stage.” But it’s taken seven years for Sater and his collaborator Duncan Sheik to get their show this far.
