Spring Awakening is an exhilarating rock musical about the trials and tribulations of growing up. The Tony Award-winning brilliant rock score and searingly emotional book take the story of youth revolt and self-discovery into a new century. Headstrong Melchior and naive Wendla stumble into each other’s arms, while anxious Moritz struggles to live up to the stringent expectations of society. With only each other for guidance, this group of young men and women travel together through the fraught and rocky path of adolescence to adulthood with poignancy and passion that is illuminating and unforgettable. This landmark musical will electrify you with the show’s fusion of morality.
