Spring Awakening was nominated for 11 Tony Awards in 2007 and won 8 of them. This is a musical based on a play written in 1891. That’s 120 years ago. Somehow this story is still powerful enough to make a huge impact on everyone who hears it.
That’s the kind of impact I want to make. I want to create something that will carry on when I’m gone, that will make people cry, that will make people think about their lives, that will make people remember me.
