About this show

First performed under heavy censorship in Germany in 1906, Frank Wedekind's Spring's Awakening closed after one night in New York in 1917 amid public outrage and charges of obscenity. The story traces the dawning sexual awareness of four teenagers who, in their painfully funny contradictions, are at once too innocent and not remotely innocent at all. The play remains fresh and unsettling even in our own sex-saturated culture.
