WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
Spring Awakening explores the journey from adolescence to adulthood with a poignancy and passion that is illuminating and unforgettable. The landmark musical is an electrifying fusion of morality, sexuality, and rock and roll that is exhilarates audiences across the nation like no other musical in years.
The beautiful young Wendla explores the mysteries of her body. Moritz — a boy so traumatized by puberty that he can't concentrate on anything — begins to toy with his present failures and try to find ways to cope. While Melchior, who seemingly has life figured out, begins to accept and become overwhelmed by his closeness to adulthood and the consequences of having to grow up far to fast. In a world where adult figures are failing to listen, these teens have to search and find within themselves answers to the desire unlike anything they've ever felt.
