On January 27 Spring Awakening will make its Melbourne debut at the National Theatre. Robert Coates will direct the production.

SPRING AWAKENING swept the 2007 Tony Awards® winning eight out of its eleven nominations, including Best Musical, Best Director Michael Mayer, Best Book Steven Sater, Best Choreography Bill T. Jones, Best Orchestrations Duncan Sheik, Best Lighting Design Kevin Adams, Best Featured Actor John Gallagher Jr..

Based on the infamous 1891 Frank Wedekind play, SPRING AWAKENING features an electrifying score by Duncan Sheik, book and lyrics Steven Sater, direction by Michael Mayer and choreography by the award-winning Bill T. Jones.

Set against the backdrop of a repressive and provincial late 19th century Germany, SPRING AWAKENING tells the timeless story of teenage self-discovery and budding sexuality as seen through the eyes of three teenagers. Haunting and provocative, SPRING AWAKENING celebrates an unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with a power, a poignancy and a passion you will never forget.

SPRING AWAKENING opened on Broadway on December 10, 2006 at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre, following its world premiere at the Atlantic Theatre Co. The original cast recording of SPRING AWAKENING won the 2008 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album. SPRING AWAKENING is produced by Ira Pittelman, Tom Hulce, Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel and the Atlantic Theatre Co.

Hailed as the "Best Musical of the Year" by the NY Drama Critics Circle, the Drama Desk, the Outer Critics Circle and the Tony Awards®, SPRING AWAKENING has emerged as the most talked about new musical on Broadway.
