MASK AND BAUBLE DRAMATIC SOCIETY
Book and Lyrics by Steven Sater
Music by Duncan Sheik
Based on the play by Franz Wedekind
Directed by Hannah Hauer-King (COL ?14)
Produced by Elizabeth Robbins (MSB ?14)
A groundbreaking rock musical adaptation of Frank Wedekind?s original 1891 play, Spring Awakening is set in a strict and unforgiving boarding school in Weimar Germany. The piece musically and dramatically engages with the pressures of repressed teenage sexuality and familial relationships, and the impact of a socially restrictive society on youth and vitality. Unafraid to engage with uncomfortable and downright shocking themes through the surprising medium of alternative rock, this work racked up eight Tony Awards in 2007, including Best Musical.
