Bootless Stageworks Presents Delaware Professional Debut of SPRING AWAKENINGBootless Stageworks Presents Delaware Professional Debut of SPRING AWAKENING
by BWW News Desk - Oct 13, 2016

Continuing its mission to create uniquely challenging contemporary theater experiences while fostering Emerging Artists, Bootless Stageworks and Stage Director Justin Walsh have assembled an exceptionally talented cast to undertake Delaware's professional premiere of the Tony award-winning musical, Spring Awakening. Written by Steven Sater with music by Duncan Sheik, the rock musical based on the play by Frank Wedekin explores self-discovery and what it means to experience love and loss. Set in a small 19th century German town, a group of teen classmates begin to experience changes that confuse and fascinate them, but coming from a society where discussions regarding sex, fantasy, homosexuality, abuse and alike are deeply frowned upon, the students are confronted with the struggle of dealing with these changes without guidance. The blended sound of both rock and roll and folk music under the skillful baton of Music Director, James W. Fuerst, heighten the stakes to make this show a theatrical experience like no other. Spring Awakening holds special meaning to Delaware's theater community as it was the vehicle for hometown hero, John Gallagher, Jr., to receive a Tony award for his portrayal of Moritz in the original Broadway production.
