Cate Blanchett and her husband, Andrew Upton, are all smiles as they attend the opening night of Spring Awakening at Sydney Theatre on Tuesday (February 9) in Sydney, Australia.
The 40-year-old actress and her husband serve as artistic directors at Sydney Theatre!
Spring Awakening , a musical set in the late 19th century that depicts teenagers discovering their sexualities, took home eight Tony Awards in 2007.
“This work really requires people who have got enough perspective and distance on their adolescence, and enough maturity to be able to interpret it,” Cate told The Australian.
“Usually when Spring Awakening is performed it’s done by people in their late 20s,” she continued. “But we’ve deliberately sought — and found — younger people who are able to do it. It’s really quite raw and confronting.”
