According to E! Online, Lea Michele is in talks to reprise her role of Wendla in the upcoming movie adaptation of Spring Awakening. Director McG has said he talked to Michele about the film and if they could work it out, she would love to do the part.
This is great news to hear, as I was fortunate enough to witness Michele’s performance in Spring Awakening during the Broadway run that earned the play eight Tony Awards. Spring Awakening is based on an 1891 German play of the same name that possesses an edge over the more classical Broadway shows.
As excited as I am for the upcoming Les Miserables adaptation by Tom Hooper, a Spring Awakening film adaptation featuring Lea Michele will have my anticipation running just as high.
