Spring Awakening description
Following its sell-out European premiere at the Lyric Hammersmith, Michael Mayer's production of Spring Awakening has transferred to the West End after receiving an unprecedented 9 'five star' reviews!
Frank Wedekind's groundbreaking 1890s play was a daring exploration of teenage sexual awakening set against a backdrop of religious and parental repression. Acclaimed writer Steven Sater and songwriter Duncan Sheik's award-winning new musical version retains the period setting of the original and introduces a superb collection of contemporary songs that serve to express the private anguish and ecstasy of the young characters. Stunning 21st century design and superb performances by the predominantly young cast combine to create an exhilarating energy that drives a remarkably compelling and timeless story
Please Note: Due to the themes and some strong language, Spring Awakening is recommended for audiences aged 14 years and over.
