Spring Awakening is based on a controversial 1891 play by German playwright Frank Wedekind, which was banned for a time in Germany because of its frank portrayal of abortion, homosexuality, rape, child abuse and suicide.
The rock musical caused a sensation when it premiered on Broadway in 2006. Set in late 19th-century Germany, it tells the story of teenagers discovering the inner and outer tumult of sexuality.
Alternative and folk-infused rock music capture and reflect the emotional essence of the timeless experience of coming of age.
The production is being co-directed by Tony Award-winning lighting designer and TDPS faculty member Brian MacDevitt in partnership with dance faculty members Sara Pearson and Patrik Widrig, a testament to the genre-blurring dynamic of the school.
SPRING AWAKENING is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. 421 West 54th Street, New York, NY 10019; Phone: 212-541-4684; Fax: 212-396-4684; www.MTIShows.com.
