Jones, respectively.
Broadway direction and choreography will be recreated by Lucy Skilbeck and JoAnn M. Hunter. Set design is by Christine Jones, costume design by Susan Hilferty, lighting design by Kevin Adams and sound design by Brian Ronan.
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.”
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.
