“One of the greatest musicals of the last
The New York Times
Adapted from the ground-breaking German classic play by Frank Wedekind (1891), this Tony Award-winning, contemporary and electrifying alt-rock musical rollercoaster explores the troubled journey from adolescence to adulthood.
In a world where sex and passion are repressed, and confusion and ignorance are capable of bringing both salvation and destruction, Spring Awakening explores the Bitch of Living for young people denied knowledge, power and autonomy. Audiences follow the anguished journey of sexual awakening with illuminating and hauntingly unforgettable poignancy in an effort to discover the beauty of living in this melancholic, complicated world.
Featuring music by Duncan Sheik and book and lyrics by Steven Sater, Spring Awakening forces audiences to question their own views on love, guilt, passion, life, and the impact that their perspectives, expectations and actions have on others. Exhilarating audiences across the world, Spring Awakening is at its heart, the story of young people struggling against all odds to build a world and find a place for themselves.
