This energetic, award-winning Broadway musical follows twelve children through their turbulent, exciting and confusing sexual awakening in a repressive German town. The Broadway musical Spring Awakening is based on an 1891 Frank Wedekind play, which was considered daring in its day for challenging the hypocrisy of morality and candidly addressing the issues facing teens as they reach adolescence. True to Wedekind's spirit of innovation, the Broadway adaptation of Spring Awakening features a driving rock score, daring choreography, and a notable cast of gifted young performers capable of telling an intricate and demanding story. Mature themes and language.
