Flashback Friday: Lea Michele and Spring Awakening's Original Cast at Drama Desks

The 2016 Drama Desk Awards ceremony, honoring outstanding New York City theater, will take place this Sunday.

The annual Drama Desk Awards, which celebrate outstanding New York City theater, always feature exciting performances from an impressive selection of the season's Broadway, off-Broadway, and off-off-Broadway shows. The 2007 ceremony was no exception, with performances including a pre-Glee Lea Michele and the original cast of Spring Awakening singing Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater's "Mama Who Bore Me."

With Spring Awakening's return to Broadway this season — and its four Drama Desk nominations — we thought we'd revisit the musical's first trip to the ceremony, where it happened to walk away with the night's biggest prize.
