Only two weeks before I go to New York! I am very excited about going to see Atlantic Theatre Company's production of Spring Awakening, a remarkable musical based on Wedekind's play, of the same name. Even though it has been one of the hottest shows on Broadway it will be closing in January, so I am glad I'll see it before it goes. It won 8 Tony Awards! The Book and lyrics of the show are by Steven Sater and the music is by Duncan Sheik.
Spring Awakening is a story about puberty and teenage sexual discovery, set in Germany in 1891. It was banned from the stage when Wedekind first wrote it and not performed in the English version for 100 years. I wonder if anyone is considering it for the UK?
