Book & Lyrics by Steven Sater
Music by Duncan Sheik
Based on the play by Frank Wedekind

An angsty rock musical adaptation of the seminal play about the trials and tribulations of growing up.

In 1890’s Germany, grown-ups hold all the cards – and rarely show or explain them to their children. With only each other for guidance, a group of young students travel the tumultuous and confusing path of adolescence. Headstrong Melchior and naive Wendla stumble into each other’s arms, passionate and curious, while anxious Moritz struggles to live up to the stringent expectations of society. Join them as they navigate coming-of-age anxiety, discovering their bodies, their minds, and themselves along the way.

Based on Frank Wedekind’s groundbreaking and controversial play (once banned in Germany), the evocative Spring Awakening fuses issues of morality and sexuality with driving rock n’ roll to create a musical that packs a powerful emotional punch. Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik’s brilliant rock score and searingly emotional book bring this story of sexual awakening, youth revolt, and self-discovery to vibrant life with illuminating poignancy and passion.
