Spring Awakening is a Tony Award-winning rock musical about the complicated journey from adolescence to adulthood during a time when adolescents weren’t free to ask questions about their changing bodies and sexuality.

Set in late-19th-century Germany, the familiar themes of teenage angst and sensuality resonate just as strongly with today’s youth.

The main characters are Wendla, a beautiful teenager who explores the wonders of her changing body, timid Moritz, who is so upset by puberty that he can’t concentrate in school, and fearless Melchior, who defends Moritz during a Latin class.

One afternoon, Wendla and Melchior accidentally meet in the woods and are overcome by a strong physical attraction. Meanwhile, poor Moritz soon fails his studies. No one reaches out to help him, and he commits suicide.

Life takes a difficult turn for Wendla and Melchior when they discover she is pregnant. The real struggle begins when they try to build a life together for their child.

When Spring Awakening premiered on Broadway in 2006, Entertainment Weekly praised it as “the most gorgeous Broadway score this decade.” The rock musical went on to win eight Tony Awards in 2007 including Best Musical, Best Original Score, Best Direction of a Musical, Best Choreography, and Best Orchestrations, followed by a Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album in 2008.
