Spring Awakening

Created by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater, Spring Awakening is an angst-ridden, tenderly honest rock musical about a group of adolescents in turn-of-the-century Germany. Based on a play by Frank Wedekind first performed in 1906, the story follows our characters as they begin to explore their own sexuality and confront the restrictions their society will place upon them in doing so. Though over 100 years removed from our own context, Spring Awakening continues to strike a chord with the awkward, fun and tragic realities of growing up. Filled with unforgettable rock anthems, heart-wrenching ballads and awkward moments that will have you cringing in recognition, Spring Awakening is the musical you want to take your friend who hates musicals to. In our characters’ unrelenting challenge to the way they’re told things are “supposed to be,” this show has never been so relevant. In the late 1800s, Wedekind started asking questions that we still don’t have the answers to. Spring Awakening at its core is a compelling exploration of how these issues transcend time and place to affect us all.
