A winner of eight Tony Awards, Steven Sater and songwriter Duncan Sheik's adaptation of Spring Awakening delves into issues of morality and sexuality with rock-and-roll riffs that enthralled Broadway audiences as the Best Musical of 2007. In a performance that the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says "will challenge performers and audiences," Pittsburgh Musical Theater transports spectators back to the repressive social order of the 1890s, a decade before the Byham Theater's historic Cultural District environs were built and christened with a bottle of coal dust. The young cast leads the audience through an emotional landscape that begins in provincial Germany but takes flight into timelessness with the help of Sheik's modern rock score. Ken Gargaro, founder of PMT and an associate professor at Robert Morris University, directs the authentically adolescent performers.
