The Phoenix Theatre of Indianapolis announces the opening of Spring Awakening, with
music by Duncan Sheik and lyrics and book by Steven Sater, Thursday, September 22, 2011, on the Phoenix Mainstage. The musical plays through Sunday, October 23, 2011.

Spring Awakening is a rock musical adaptation of the controversial 1891 German play of the same title by Frank Wedekind. Set in late nineteenth-century Germany, it is all about teenagers who are discovering the inner and outer tumult of sexuality. The original story was banned in Germany due to its portrayal of controversial subject matter. In the musical, alternative rock is employed as part of the folk-infused rock score. Spring Awakening received 11 Tony Award nominations in 2007, winning eight, including Tonys for best musical, direction, book, score and featured actor. The show also won four Drama Desk Awards, while its London production won four Olivier Awards.
