Spring Awakening is a rock musical with music by Duncan Sheik and a book and lyrics by Steven Sater. It is based on the controversial German play Spring Awakening (1891) by Frank Wedekind which was banned in Germany for some time due to its frank portrayal of abortion, homosexuality, rape, child abuse and suicide. Set in late-19th century Germany, the musical tells the story of teenagers discovering the inner and outer tumult of sexuality. In the musical, alternative rock is employed as part of the folk-infused rock score.The original Broadway production won 8 Tony Awards, including Tonys for Best Musical, Direction, Book, Score and Featured Actor.

by Meghan Pearson - Oct 7, 2014

As part of Centaur's Theatres Brave New Looks series, Persephone Productions certainly does take a hard look at adolescent turmoil in their remount of Spring Awakening. They unmistakably prove that repression of youth is a timeless and borderless reality that is often exasperated by adults' indifference and intolerance towards young people. (more...)

And MacTheatre pulled it off. (more...)
