La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts presents the Tony Award-winning musical sensation, SPRING AWAKENING, with book and lyrics by Steven Sater and music by Duncan Sheik, based on the play by Frank Wedekind. The show features musical direction by John Glaudini, choreography by Dana Solimando and is directed by Brian Kite. SPRING AWAKENING opened last night, Friday, March 22, and runs through Saturday, March 30, 2013. BroadwayWorld was there and brings you photos from the opening night festivities!
Winner of 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Spring Awakening is a rock musical adaptation of Frank Wedekind's 1891 expressionist play about the trials and tribulations, and the exhilaration of the teen years.
It's Germany, 1891. The beautiful young Wendla explores her body and asks her mother where babies come from. Elsewhere, the brilliant and fearless young Melchior defends his buddy Moritz -- a boy so traumatized by puberty he can't concentrate on anything. One afternoon in the woods, Wendla and Melchior discover a desire unlike anything they've ever felt. Spring Awakening explores the confusion and desperation that ensue when the onrushing tide of hormones meets the ignorance of children and celebrates the unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with a power, poignancy, and passion that you will never forget.
