  • Summary
  • Theater

The winner of eight Tony awards and featuring “the most gorgeous Broadway score this decade” (Entertainment Weekly), with songs by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater, Spring Awakening is a celebration of youth and self-discovery that combines classic text and rock and roll. Following a group of 19th Century German teens as they grapple with sexuality, morality and rebellion in a world of unresponsive adults, Spring Awakening explodes the boundaries of musical theatre to reveal the touching and passionate journey of growing up.

Due to adult situations and adult content, parental supervision is recommended for ages 18 and younger.
