About the Musical

This musical is based on one of theatre's most controversial masterpieces, Frank Wedekind's 1891 German play SPRING AWAKENING.  This work was considered so audacious in its depiction of parental oppression and teenage self-discovery that it was banned from the stage and not performed for nearly 100 years.

The musical version of SPRING AWAKENING opened on Broadway at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre on December 10, 2006, winning eight Tony Awards, four Drama Desk Awards, and four Olivier Awards.
