Lea Michele in Pre-Broadway US TOUR VERSION of WHISPERING from Spring Awakening (( COMPARE THIS VERSION TO THE ON-BROADWAY-VERSION POSTED BELOW!! ))
again it is not “PRE-Broadway” it is off Broadway and it is not a tour she never toured with SA.
Okay my father worked on this show and I not only worked alongside him (thus got to know the cast from my POV but more importantly, I was privy to the opinions of the producers and the critics), I also went to high school and sung alongside skylar LIPSTEIN (stage name Astan - just like Lea made her middle name her last name - instead of being Lea SARFATI) in chorus.
Lea began working with SA and Co. in the late 1990s alongside Groff when she was FOURTEEN (which is how they became so close - bc they spent a total of EIGHT years togetherness working w/ the show) The show toured until it finally gained the financial backing to bring it to broadway SIX YEARS LATER. Lea was TWENTY when it debuted on Broadway in 2006. She spent more time as Wendla in the PRE-BROADWAY 6 YEAR workshop/TOUR than she did playing Wendla on BROADWAY. By 2008 she was done - 2 years.
Not sure how it happen but your recall of events is incorrect.
Lea started doing workshop at 14 (1999) all in NY so no touring at all. She did not meet Jon Groff until Dec 2005 when they started rehearsing for the off bway production of SA. Lea’s first Melchoir was Gavin Creel.
She did several workshops and a concert type deal at Lincoln Center those were spread out from the time she was 14 until 19. Jon Groff was not apart of any of those workshops. Again Jon Groff joined the cast of SA for the off bway production. Lea and Jon worked on the the show from Dec 2005 - May 2008 - so not 8 years not even close. They became close probably due to the imitate scenes and subject matter.
How exactly do you explain her touring a show while also in NJ going to school and then her role in Fiddle on roof? How do you explain Jon working on SA for 8 years and never mentioning that in any interview and how he was still in HS in PA?
Now they did off bway for a few months and then had a few preview shows before the official opening on Bway in Dec 2006 but neither Lea or Jon ever toured with SA before or after the bway show.
And the term “Pre-Bway” is just not used.
Workshops do not equal touring.
Google - it will give you the facts.
Michele: When I saw Jonathan at the “Spring Awakening” audition, I had done, prior to the Off Broadway production, I think three workshops of the show. And I had worked with two prior Melchiors. They’d narrowed it down to a couple guys, and Jonathan was one of them. And I was like, this boy is so sweet – I was trying to help him out – but poor thing’s not going to get this job. I felt bad for him, and then he ended up obviously getting the part and just being incredible. http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/04/12/those-youve-known-lea-michele-and-jonathan-groff-reunite-on-glee/?_php=true&_type=blogs&_r=0
Q: Of all the actors, have you been with the show the longest or are there others who have been with it for the six years?
Michele: I’m the only one that’s been with it this long. The only other two cast members are Skylar Astin and John Gallagher — they did the workshop at Lincoln Center, but I’m the only one who’s been involved with it since Day One.http://www.playbill.com/celebritybuzz/article/103763-DIVA-TALK-Chatting-with-Spring-Awakenings-Lea-Michele-Plus-News-of-LuPone-Kritzer-and-Gravitte

You want to know how terrible that these douche bags can get? I made a Sailor Venus cosplay for my younger sister who looked amazing and proud to wear it. I made sure she wore white shorts that covered her panties and stopped where the skirt ended, (because of the horror stories we heard about perverts taking pictures up cosplayers’ skirts without consent) Turns out there were jerks trying to take pics up her skirt, but started to complain to each other that she was wearing shorts under and it wasn’t fair. SHE WAS UNDERAGE AT THE TIME OF WEARING THIS COSPLAY! Not only were they attempting sexual harassment, but ON A MINOR! Please, reblog this, spread the word, and stand up for other cosplayers if you see/hear this.they were complaining because it wasn’t fair
