With remarkable poignancy and passion, Spring Awakening explores the difficult, universal journey from adolescence to adulthood, in an alt-rock musical adaptation of the explosive play by pioneering Victorian author Frank Wedekind. This contemporary Spring Awakening recounts the story of two young people and their circles of friends as they navigate the joys and horrors of self-discovery, forcefully illuminating their secret inner lives through “the most gorgeous Broadway score this decade” (Entertainment Weekly). A daring tale sensitively spun by composer Duncan Sheik and lyricist Steven Sater, this acclaimed landmark musical electrifies with its powerful celebration of youth, desire, rebellion and the healing power of love.
