Spring Awakening, the rock musical that took Broadway by storm, begins CenterStage’s stellar 2014-15 season of Broadway shows and public events.
In this rousing musical, a group of pubescent students navigate the anxieties of coming-of-age in a provincial world as their budding sexuality unfolds from youthful lust to tragic consequences. It is ultimately a timeless portrayal of the issues teens have faced throughout generations and the ongoing communication, or lack thereof, between parents and their children.
Fusing morality, sexuality and rock and roll, Spring Awakening caused critics to exclaim that it awakened Broadway like no other musical. It won eight Tony Awards including Best Musical and was hailed by the New York Drama Critics Circle, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle as the Best Musical of the Year.
Join CenterStage on Sun., Aug. 17, at 4 p.m., immediately following the 2 p.m. performance, for a conversation with local teens and parents to discuss what it’s really like to be a teen in 2014. The discussion will be facilitated by therapeutic professionals. All participants will have the opportunity to ask questions or share comments anonymously.
