ABOUT THE SHOW:
The turbulent emotions and burgeoning sexuality of adolescence are harnessed in “Spring Awakening,” winner of eight Tony Awards, four Drama Desk Awards and a Grammy for original cast album. The musical is a bold and innovative adaptation of Frank Wedekind’s 19th century play, which was originally banned in Germany for its frank depiction of sexuality and controversial issues. It gained a new life on Broadway in 2006 as a folk-infused rock musical, with book and lyrics by Steven Sater and an electrifying score by Duncan Sheik. Haunting and provocative, Spring Awakening celebrates an unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with a power, a poignancy, and a passion you will never forget.
