BWW Review: SPRING AWAKENING Entices the Audience at Downtown Cabaret Theatre
The Tony Award-winning musical, Spring Awakening hits the stage at Downtown Cabaret Theatre, spotlighting the wake of adolescence through comedy, drama, and music.
The story revolves around a group of teenagers discovering their sexuality and trying to grasp their newfound feelings - while keeping it hidden from the strict adults in their lives. But when two teens, Melchior (Eric Regan) and Wendla (Madeleine Tommins) engage in sex, they soon find out what all the talk is about and later learn the consequences that love ad lust can sometimes have.
Meanwhile a friend, Moritz (Robert Peterpaul) is struggling with his own demons, raging with hormones, emotions, and heartache, making for a an emotional ride when things don't go as planned.
With a mix of laugh-out-loud bits and devastating moments that grip your heart, Spring Awakening is a musical that does it all, ripping out live rock tunes of "My Junk," to "Totally Fucked," and several powerful ballads spread in between.
Spring Awakening is currently running from now until April, 2, 2017.
