Repressed German teens exploring their budding sexuality? We say, Ja Wohl! 2008 Grammy-winning composer/songwriter and indie rock fave Duncan Sheik transforms the notoriously banned 1891 Franz Wedekind play, Spring Awakening, into a theatrical piece as chic as the latest meatpacking hotspot while giving galvanizing voice to our inner recuperating adolescent.
Awakening awoke at downtown's Atlantic Theater and moved on to nab multiple awards. Add choreography by Bill T. Jones and you've got a groundbreaking performance.
Heads Up: Challenging its audience with a starkly honest exploration of teen angst in songs like "Totally F*cked", this must-see music infused experience refreshingly startles as it stimulates.
