Spring Awakening

Spring Awakening musical is a new rock musical following "Grease" and "We will rock you" success. The plot is based on a play written in 1891 by the famous German author Frank Wedekind.
The story is about teenagers between 14 and 17 years old who are discovering sexuality and its tumults. Masturbation, abortion, rape, child abuse and suicide are such serious topics lightly got onto with alternative rock music.

Writer Steven Sater and songwriter Duncan Sheik's new musical keeps the spirit of 1890's about morals, sexuality and parental repression and features superb contemporary songs to highlight the feelings and exaltation of the characters. 19th century society time combined with 21st century direction produced an exhilarating show.

The original play was banned from the stage in Germany and has not been performed in its complete form in English for nearly 100 years ago. Nonetheless, the musical directed by Michael Mayer has already seduced Broadway and won one Academy Award and 8 Tony awards.
Million of US people already enjoyed this musical after 2 years in Broadway. The musical recently moved in West End London and plan shows in Japan, Korea, Germany and South America for the next year.
