What is 'Spring Awakening'?
'Spring Awakening' is a Tony Award winning musical (Best New Musical among many others)
that was adapted from a play of the same name. The musical is a coming of age story exploring the difficulties we face as we transition from child to adult; struggling with teenage angst, sexuality, finding your voice.
