BWW Reviews: Deaf West's Dynamically Staged SPRING AWAKENING Returns Briefly to AnnenbergBWW Reviews: Deaf West's Dynamically Staged SPRING AWAKENING Returns Briefly to Annenberg
by Don Grigware - May 31, 2015

The play Spring Awakening by Frank Wedekind, which was written in Germany in the late 19th century was censored for a time due to its frank portrayal of masturbation, abortion, homosexuality, rape, child abuse and suicide. Exposing the rocky sexual coming of age of a group of teenagers, its helter-skelter but life-affirming journey is again explored in the 2006 Tony Award winning musical of the same name Spring Awakening through folk based and alternative rock, and boasts some expertly staged storytelling, singing, choreography and exuberant performances at the Wallis Annenberg through June 7 only. This is a brief return of Deaf West's critically-acclaimed production from last fall 2014 directed by Michael Arden. (more...)
