Sleeping Beauty Wakes Added to La Jolla Playhouse Season

La Jolla Playhouse has announced that a new adaptation of Sleeping Beauty Wakes, book by Rachel Sheinkin (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), and score by GrooveLily’s Brendan Milburn (music) and Valerie Vigoda (lyrics), will be its sixth and final production of the 2011-2012 season.

The production will be directed by Rebecca Taichman, who will also direct the Playhouse’s 2011-12 world premiere of Milk Like Sugar.

A co-production with Princeton’s McCarter Theatre, Sleeping Beauty Wakes will run July 19 – August 21, 2011. In it, a young beauty is brought to a sleep disorder clinic, and soon all the patients find themselves sharing a familiar dream. With beguiling characters, hypnotic lyrics, and a rocking score, Sleeping Beauty Wakes delves into the magical space between dreaming and waking in a delightful twist on a classic tale.

Tickets to Sleeping Beauty Wakes and the rest of Playhouse’s season are currently available through subscription by calling (858) 550-1010 or by visiting www.lajollaplayhouse.org.
