“Was Steven Slater and Duncan Sheik”s musical ahead of its time? It didn’t survive in the West End but it deserved to do so attracting a young audience of the kind that now love musicals such as Dear Even Hansen, Six and Jamie. Based on Frank Wedekind’s banned 1881 play about the suffocating consequences of bourgeois morality and teenage ignorance it focusses on three teenagers whose search for freedom leads to tragedy. I didn’t love the original production which spent loads of money on pretending it hadn’t spent any but it will be fascinating to see how Rupert Goold and designer Miriam Buether approach a show which gets to the heart of adolescent angst and anarchy.”

Overview

O, I’m gonna be wounded. O, I’m gonna be your wound. O, I’m gonna bruise you. O, you’re gonna be my bruise.

A time to learn.
A time to rebel.
A time to love.
A time to burn.

Winner of the Tony and Olivier awards for best musical, Spring Awakening tells a story of adolescent anarchy, set to one of the most loved scores of the 21st century. A group of teenagers – silenced and controlled by a censorious society – discover a new world of feeling and freedom outside the classroom, with beautiful and devastating consequences.

Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold (Ink, Albion) directs the first London revival of Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik's (American Psycho: A New Musical, Almeida Theatre and Broadway) acclaimed musical, based on the ground-breaking and once-banned 19th century play by Frank Wedekind.

Cast includes Amara Okereke (winner of 2018 The Stage Debut Award for Best Actress in a Musical for Les Misérables), and Laurie Kynaston (winner of 2019 Evening Standard Theatre Award for Emerging Talent for The Son at Kiln Theatre and West End). Further cast to be announced.
