Sleeping Beauty Wakes GrooveLily
The new musical from pop-trio GrooveLily (Striking 12, A Little Midsummer Night's Music) and Rachel Sheinkin (Spelling Bee), a resetting of Sleeping Beauty in a 21st-century sleep disorder clinic.
The Ovation Award-winning SLEEPING BEAUTY WAKES blooms from the subconscious dreams of its main character, whose evasive waking life mirrors the nocturnal one from which she cannot escape. Originally commissioned for the stage by the Deaf West Theatre Company, SLEEPING BEAUTY WAKES was hailed by The Hollywood Reporter as "brilliant entertainment," while the Los Angeles Daily News found it "a thing of beauty," cheering "Beauty's music just plain rocks." This premiere recording – filled with the eclectic and harmonious, character-driven songs that are a GrooveLily signature – is performed by band members Valerie Vigoda, Gene Lewin and Brendan Milburn, who vividly interpret the beguiling characters and driving, hypnotic melodies they dreamed into being.
