The Deal

Spring Awakening

Addressing the darker side of adolescent life in a sexually restrictive society, the 2007 Tony—sweeping musical Spring Awakening is based on an 1892 play of the same name, rarely performed and often banned in its own time. Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik arranged, scored, and adapted this raw, unfiltered story, which follows a student body of turn-of-the-century teenagers as they navigate the difficult road to adulthood. The singer-songwriter behind the radio hit “Barely Breathing,” Sheik sets the uncomfortable truths of adolescent sexual anxiety to appropriately heart-wrenching songs such as the romantically naïve Wendla’s unanswered plea for wisdom in “Mama Who Bore Me,” and “Touch Me,” a tender, triumphant ballad that buzzes with physical desire. The centerpiece of the drama is the growing attraction between the headstrong yet well-educated Melchior and Wendla, whose faulty knowledge leads to tragedy.

Meanwhile, Melchior’s suicidal best friend, Moritz, finds hope and comfort in Bohemian runaway Ilse, and tirelessly works to succeed in school even as he struggles to rein in his stampeding libido. None of the central couples’ classmates are free of secrets either, and the musical boldly faces these realities, from closeted homosexuality to child abuse. This musical contains partial nudity and graphic sexuality, and is intended for mature audiences.
