WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Spring Awakening explores the journey from adolescence to adulthood through an illuminating book and poignant lyrics by Steven Sater, and a gorgeous score by Duncan Sheik. Based on the controversial 1891 German play by Frank Wedekind, Spring Awakening is a thrilling blend of morality, sexuality, and rock 'n' roll that has been rousing audiences across the nation for years. In late 19th-century Germany, the grownups hold all the cards, and the children are expected to obey. However, once this corrupt society is exposed, a group of students learn how to navigate teenage self-discovery and coming-of-age anxiety.
