Spring Awakening - Ballyhoo Theatre
Book/Lyrics by Steven Sater, Music by Duncan Sheik, based on the play by Frank Wedekind
Spring Awakening is an extraordinary musical that celebrates youth and rebellion in a daring fusion of morality, sexuality and rock & roll. Set in repressive 19th-century Germany, a group of teenagers are caught between their sexual urges and societys contradictory teachings. Revealing their alluringly melancholy story of self-discovery and coming-of-age anxiety, they attempt to reckon with the thrilling, complicated, and confusing time of their sexual awakening. Inspired by Frank Wedekinds controversial 1891 play about teenage sexuality and societys efforts to control it, the piece seamlessly merges past and present, underscoring the timelessness of adolescent angst and the universality of human passion. Spring Awakening takes its inspiration from one of literatures most controversial masterpieces a work so daring in its depiction of teenage self-discovery, it was banned from the stage and not performed in its complete form in English for nearly 100 years. The musical adaptation is the winner of 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score.
