PLUS: A tip from composer Duncan Sheik himself--“The concept was that the music would be completely contemporary and modern, and it was a difficult process to get to that place... I'll be really honest with you, we had some kids who were really very 'Broadway' in the initial workshops, and even some of the kids who are in the show now, they've done Les Miz and Ragtime and things like that. So they sing in that way, and--it was torture for me. I had to kind of crack the whip with them, 'You're not Cosette, you're Fiona Apple.' You know, 'Pretend that you're Thom Yorke. You're a kid in your bedroom who wants to be a rockstar.'” (More here.)
