State Theatre presents the national tour of the Broadway musical Spring Awakening, the winner of eight Tony® Awards, including Best Musical. Spring Awakening features a score by Duncan Sheik, and book and lyrics by Steven Sater.

Based on the 1891 Frank Wedekind play, the landmark musical is a stirring combination of sexuality, morality and rock & roll that is captivating audiences across the nation like no other musical in years. Set against the backdrop of a repressive and provincial late 19th century Germany, Spring Awakening follows a group of young students as they navigate through teenage self-discovery and coming of age anxiety. A powerful celebration of youth and rebellion the New York Times raves, “Broadway may never be the same.”

Spring Awakening features original direction and choreography by Michael Mayer and Bill T. Jones. Broadway direction and choreography will be recreated by Lucy Skilbeck and JoAnn Hunter. Set design is by Christine Jones, costume design by Susan Hilferty, lighting design by Kevin Adams and sound design by Brian Ronan.

The Broadway production opened on December 10, 2006, at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre. The original cast recording of Spring Awakening won the 2008 Grammy® Award for Best Musical Show Album. Originally produced by Ira Pittelman, Tom Hulce, Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel and the Atlantic Theatre Co., the 2010 – 2011 national tour of Spring Awakening is produced by NETworks Presentations, LLC.

Spring Awakening contains mature themes, sexual situations and strong language.
