When Spring Awakening debuted on Broadway in 2006 it took home eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Told by Grammy award winner Duncan Sheik and author and lyricist Steven Sater through what Entertainment Weekly called, “the most gorgeous Broadway score this decade,” Spring Awakening explores the journey from adolescence to adulthood with a poignancy and passion that is illuminating and unforgettable. The powerful story and angsty score follows a group of late nineteenth century German students on their passage as they navigate teenage self-discovery and coming of age anxiety in a powerful celebration of youth and rebellion.
Spring Awakening is based on Frank Wedekind’s controversial 1891 drama Frühlings Erwachen, a work considered in its day to be so scandalous and daring that it was banned from the stage and not performed in its complete form in english for nearly 100 years. In the musical adaptation, 19th Century adolescents confined in repressive, restrictive lives, utilize a contemporary pop/rock score to channel their inner thoughts and share their deep yearnings, along with their painful and joyous stories.
Spring Awakening includes mature content, subject matter and strong language and it may not be suitable for younger audiences.
