Spring Awakening Announces Plans for Broadway Transfer
Based on Frank Wedekind's 1891 play about teenagers coming of age in Germany, Spring Awakening has music by Duncan Sheik and book and lyrics by Steven Sater. The show is directed by Michael Mayer and features choreography by Bill T. Jones. The cast of the Off-Broadway production is led by Jonathan Groff, Lea Michele, and John Gallagher, Jr.
Speaking on behalf of the producing team, Pittelman said: "We're really pleased that this exciting and unique production will now reach a much wider audience. Duncan, Steven, and Michael have created a musical experience that's very special, and we are proud that this new work is on its way to Broadway."
