Spring Awakening took Broadway by storm when it debuted, winning eight Tony Awards, among them Best Musical. Punctuated by an electrifying and hauntingly beautiful rock score co-written by "Barely Breathing" pop mastermind Duncan Sheik, this bold and touching drama captures the timeless and turbulent experience of transitioning from youth to adulthood, as a group of teenagers navigate the confusing and often troubled waters of adolescence and their budding sexuality. Based on an expressionist play that caused a scandal in 1891 Germany, the show's sharply-drawn characters grapple with issues like teen suicide, pregnancy and identity -- tough topics that remain as relevant as ever -- in this new production at the Marriott Theatre in Lincolnshire.
The running time is approximately two hours, 30 minutes with one intermission.
Spring Awakening contains mature/sexual language, themes and content and is intended for adults only.
