Last weekend a small group of us went to see Spring Awakening at TPAC. I always forget how much I enjoy going to shows. It also means I am two new shows away from crossing off #42 on my 101 list!
The show is kind of hard to describe or explain and I wouldn’t do it justice….so I’m going to share what some of the actual reviews had to say:
The winner of 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical – told by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater through “the most gorgeous Broadway score this decade” (Entertainment Weekly) – Spring Awakening explores the journey from adolescence to adulthood with poignancy and passion you will never forget.
The landmark musical Spring Awakening is an electrifying fusion of morality, sexuality and rock & roll that is exhilarating audiences across the nation like no other musical in years.
Join this group of late 19th century German students on their passage as the navigate teenage self-discovery and coming of age anxiety in a powerful celebration of youth and rebellion in the daring, remarkable Spring Awakening.
“Broadway may never be the same again!” NY Times
It is definitely a unique and entertaining musical. I would absolutely recommend seeing it, but be warned that if it were a movie, it would earn an R rating. Not exactly a family-friendly show or for those who are easily offended. Great show, though.
