Modern musical theater often pushes the limits of society by introducing taboo content with the soothing tunes of "The Wheels on the Bus." Support controversial croons with today's Groupon for a ticket to Spring Awakening at The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts on Tuesday, May 10 at 7 p.m. in Worcester. Choose between two seating options:
- For $17, you get one upper-balcony ticket (up to a $34 value).
- For $22, you get one mid-balcony ticket (up to a $44 value).
The electrifying melodies of Duncan Sheik and the eloquent lyrics of Steven Sater come together in Spring Awakening, a 2007 Tony Award-winner and musical adaption of Frank Wedekind's controversial play of the same name. The curtains open on late 19th-century Germany, as a group of adolescent students struggle to make the leap to adulthood while combating issues such as sexuality, morality, and Algebra II. Families with children or child-like adults should be aware that the coming of age musical includes adult language, subject matter, and nudity.
The show is staged in The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts, built in 1904 and since restored to reflect an appealing unity of historic beauty and modern amenity. The performance hall houses 2,300 seats in an elegant, golden-hued atmosphere complete with delicately dangling chandeliers and seats as soft as the moustaches of vaudevillians past.
The Hanover Theatre offers a 10% discount on tickets to members, kids, and students, but this Groupon still represents the best deal for everyone.
