I can’t even begin to explain how totally, completely, incredibly stoked I am that Spring Awakening is traveling to Atlanta in March!
Attention Everyone: You absolutely must see this play!
If you aren’t that into theater (yet!) or haven’t heard of S.A., here’s the Q+DD on the show:
Spring Awakening is a rock musical adaptation of the controversial 1891 German play of the same title by Frank Wedekind. It features music by Duncan Sheik and a book and lyrics by Steven Sater. Set in late-nineteenth century Germany, it concerns teenagers who are discovering the inner and outer tumult of sexuality. The original play was banned in Germany for about a century due to its portrayal of abortion, rape, bondage, child abuse and suicide. In the musical, alternative rock is employed as part of the folk-infused rock score. Spring Awakening received eleven 2007 Tony Award nominations, winning eight, including Tonys for best musical, direction, book, score and featured actor. The show also won four Drama Desk Awards.

It’s rough. It’s tough. It’s controversial. I promise – it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen before!! (I feel like I am on the verge of a 30′s traveling circus promotion here…)
“She said: Give me that hand, please
And the itch you can’t control
Let me teach you how to handle
All the sadness in your soul
Oh, we’ll work that silver magic
Then we’ll aim it at the wall
She said: Love may make you blind kid-
But I wouldn’t mind at all”
- Spring Awakening “The Bitch of Living”
