Winner of eight 2007 Tony® awards, including BEST MUSICAL! This groundbreaking rock musical created by Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik, retells Frank Wedekind’s controversial German play from 1891. The story follows a group of teenagers, including best friends Melchior and Moritz, on a quest of self discovery, love, sexuality, friendship and rebellion. Spring Awakening holds a mirror up to our time and is the must-see musical of a new generation.

“Once in a generation, if we’re lucky, an unexpected new musical comes along and changes everything. That is the thrilling achievement of Spring Awakening.”
– John Heilpern, New York Observer
