NSU Theatre: Spring Awakening
Oct 03, 2018
“Spring Awakening” with book and lyrics by Steven Sater and music by Duncan Sheik is based on the groundbreaking and controversial play “Spring Awakening” by Frank Wedekind. The play is set in 1891 when the grownups hold all the cards. Headstrong Melchior and naïve Wendla stumble into each other’s arms, passionate and curious while anxious Moritz struggles to live up to the stringent expectations of society.
With only each other for guidance, this group of young men and women travel the fraught and rocky path of adolescence, discovering their bodies, their minds and themselves along the way. An eclectic, vibrant celebration of youth and rebellion, “Spring Awakening” fuses issues of morality, sexuality and rock and roll into a story that packs a powerful emotional punch. It is suitable for mature audiences over 18.
