Spring Awakening comes to the Novello Theatre following its five star success at the Lyric Hammersmith. Michael Mayer’s European premiere of the award-winning Broadway show is based on Frank Wedekind’s groundbreaking 1890s play – a daring exploration of teenage sexual awakening set against a backdrop of religious and parental repression. Acclaimed writer Steven Sater and songwriter Duncan Sheik’s award-winning new musical version retains the period setting of the original and introduces a superb collection of contemporary songs that serve to express the private anguish and ecstasy of the young characters. Stunning 21st century design and superb performances by the predominantly young cast combine to create an exhilarating energy that drives a remarkably compelling and timeless story.
