Winner of eight Tony® Awards, Spring Awakening is an exhilarating coming-of-age story set to a raucous rock score. Based on the provocative 1906 play by Frank Wedekind, this groundbreaking musical provides an unvarnished look at a group of teenagers grappling with issues of sexuality, identity, and society as they navigate the turbulent transition from innocence to adulthood. “...represents the sort of imaginative boost that the American musical desperately needs.” (Washington Post)
