Spring Awakening - 2015 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

$55-$160

Deaf West's production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.

When it debuted on Broadway, SPRING AWAKENING's raw and honest portrayal of youth in revolt shattered expectations of what a musical could do, earning it 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book (for writer, Steven Sater) and Best Score (for composer, Duncan Sheik). Deaf West's innovative new production takes this already revolutionary musical to electrifying new heights by choreographing sign language into the production, intensifying the rift between the lost and the longing teenagers and the adults who refuse to hear them. Directed by Michael Arden, Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is full of knockout performances, explosive music and soul-stirring emotion.

Running Time:

Two hours and 20 minutes, with 1 intermission

Brooks Atkinson Theatre (Broadway)

Featured Reviews For Spring Awakening


A ‘Spring’ reawakening on Broadway - Washington Post
They're softer interpretations of the roles pioneered respectively by Jonathan Groff and John Gallagher Jr. (Lea Michele was the original Wendla, Melchior's love interest.) And with supporting actors such as Camryn Manheim and Patrick Page delivering more vocally assaultive turns this time as the oppressive adults in the story, the musical's dynamic has shifted: the teens in director Michael Arden's revival seem less defiant than embattled.

Theater Review: A Signed (But Not Silenced) Spring Awakening - Vulture
Occasionally - and Deaf West Theatre's production of Spring Awakening is a superb example - something latent in the material meets the mood of the time to make a revival not just a necessity but a great pleasure... This revival would have been unjustifiable were it not for the brilliant idea of placing the story in the context of deafness and using many deaf actors to tell it.

The current revival of SPRING AWAKENING by Deaf West Theatre has made its one year journey from a small theatre, to the Wallis Annenberg Center for Performing Arts, and is now on Broadway at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. The year long experience has united the cast and their deep chemistry is apparent- both on and off the stage. Just one aspect that makes the show so magical is the coming together of the Deaf and hearing theatrical communities, and their endless creativity can be seen in everything they do. One recent example is the hilarious video An Autocorrect Nightmare directed, written, and produced by cast member, Alex Wyse.
