Frank Wedekind's unflinching coming-of-age drama Spring's Awakening made waves of controversy when it debuted in 1906. In fact, the play's 1917 New York City premiere was threatened with closure when it was deemed pornographic. The influential production -- later the basis for a Tony-winning Broadway musical -- follows a group of teenagers as they navigate the troubled waters of adolescence. The revered German dramatist didn't shy away from such taboo topics as abortion, suicide, abuse and sex. Just as shocking and provocative as it was in the past, Wedekind's edgy original play breathes new life on stage at the Corner Office NYC Theater.
