Why See Spring Awakening?
Don't Miss electric Rock Musical Spring Awakening
Duncan Sheik's luminous rock musical Spring Awakening garnered eight Tony Awards, including the prize for Best Musical, Direction, Book and Score during its debut Broadway run in 2006. Breaking the musical theater mould with a gripping adaptation of German playwright Frank Wedekind's once controversial 1891 play, the production transformed the original text's repressed teenagers into creative dreamers, schemers and rebellious rock stars thanks to the soaring melodies and pulsing rhythms of its electrifying indie-rock infused score. Don't miss the modern coming-of-age musical when it lights up Houston as part of TUTS 2019/20 theater season this fall!
Set in Germany in the late 19th century, Spring Awakening chronicles the trials and tribulations of the sexual awakening and self discovery of a group of school kids. There's handsome genius Melchior and innocent Wendla whose curiosity and passion grows in each others arms, and social outcast Mortiz, who struggles to conform to society's norms, amongst others. Their parents and teachers simply won't educate them when it comes to the mechanics of sex and physical love, so the hormone-filled teens rail against the system and forge their own path to adulthood.
