Broadway’s Award-Winning Spring Awakening comes to Bass Concert Hall!
Originally banned in Germany due to the graphic nature of it’s content (think masturbation, abortion, rape, child abuse, and suicide – all rolled into a mere 2 hours), the adaptation of Frank Wedekind’s 1891 play, Spring Awakening, is now the most talked about musical on Broadway, and will take over Bass Concert Hall beginning October 20th.
Written by Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik, most known for his 1996 hit single, “Barely Breathing,” it has gone on to win 8 Tony® Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score (Music), and is cited as being “haunting and electrifying…unmatched by anything in the theatre right now” by Charles Isherwood of The New York Times.
Set in Germany during the late 19th Century, Spring Awakening sheds light on the consequences (although slightly sensational) that may occur if sexual education is withheld from pubescent, curious teens – and is accompanied by a full-fledged rock-infused musical score.
The play is scheduled to run from Tuesday, October 20th to Sunday, October 25th – check out the event listing on Do512 for more information and a chance to win a pair of FREE TICKETS!
