From the company who brought you Spamalot, Cabaret, Into The Woods and RENT, this year’s exitStageLeft main-stage production, Spring Awakening, involves a cast of brilliant youth performers and is extremely relevant in this age of social upheaval. A rock musical, based on the 1891 German play of the same name by Frank Wedekind, Spring Awakening is set in late 19th-century provincial Germany and tells the story of teens (both hilariously and disastrously) discovering the inner and outer tumult of teenage sexuality in a repressive, authoritarian, dogmatically religious society. Although the setting, costumes, and dialogue belong to the past, the alt and folk-rock musical numbers become the youths’ opportunity to not only vent about, but more importantly escape from life – creating a vision, if you will, of a safer, saner, and more fun future. StageAgent.com describes Spring Awakening as “An electric, vibrant celebration of youth and rebellion…(it) fuses issues of morality, sexuality and rock and roll into a story that packs a powerful emotional punch.” It will provide a wonderful evening’s theatrical entertainment, leaving audiences with an impassioned, thoughtful, motivated and hopeful desire to continue to make the world a better place. The show opens August 31, and runs September 1, 5, 6, 7, 8.
