A close-knit community of teens grapple with their changing bodies and developing minds under the reproachful eyes of disapproving parents who refuse to talk about what it all means in this fearless musical based on Frank Wedekind’s powerful and exhilarating 19th Century play that was banned for decades in Germany. The winner of eight TONY Awards, Spring Awakening took the world by storm in 2006 and redefined musical theatre with its electrifying indie-rock and folk-infused score that exudes love, grief, skepticism, and sexuality.
Haunting and electrifying! This brave new musical has a shivery, sensual allure unmatched by anything in the theater right now.
