Harrison Lang, in cooperation with The Egremont Barn, is proud to announce the Berkshires' premiere production of the Broadway smash hit musical, Spring Awakening. Winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Spring Awakening explores the journey from adolescence to adulthood through an illuminating book and poignant lyrics by Steven Sater, and a gorgeous score by Duncan Sheik. Based on the controversial 1891 seminal German play by Frank Wedekind, Spring Awakening is a thrilling blend of morality, sexuality, and rock and roll that has been rousing audiences across the nation for years. In late nineteenth century Germany, the grown-ups hold all the cards and the children are expected to obey. However, once this corrupt society is exposed, a group of students learn how to navigate teenage self-discovery and coming of age anxiety.  (more...)

BWW Review: Brave, Bold, and Beautiful SPRING AWAKENING at Lyric Music TheaterBWW Review: Brave, Bold, and Beautiful SPRING AWAKENING at Lyric Music Theater
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - Mar 20, 2017

South Portland's Lyric Music Theater is taking a bold and daring step in presenting the 2006 musical adaptation of Frank Wedekind's 1891 provocative play, Spring Awakening. The wrenching musical drama explores with a piercing honesty the lives of teenagers and their adult authority figures locked in a lethal struggle as the young men and women search for freedom of expression, sexual liberation and fulfillment, and the embrace of their true identities in a dark, corseted world of repression and convention. The issues raised by Frank Wedekind's play remain as potent and relevant today as they did in the late 19th century, and the Steven Sater book and lyrics and Duncan Sheik music remain true to the essence of the piece. Wedekind's world - the world of Freud and nascent psychology - is a bleak place where adults abuse their children psychologically and physically, where creativity is stifled, and love - as a total expression of body and soul - is forbidden. In this dark universe, the young villagers long in secret and search for a path through the pain. (more...)
