Spring Awakening is a rock musical with music by Duncan Sheik and book and lyrics by Steven Sater. It is based on the
controversial German play Spring Awakening (1891) by Frank Wedekind which was banned in Germany for some time
due to its frank portrayal of adult topics. Set in late 19th century Germany, the musical tells the story of teenagers
discovering the inner and outer tumult of sexuality. In the musical, alternative rock is employed as part of the folk-infused rock score with the musicians in full view on stage. The original Broadway production won 8 Tony Awards,
including Tony’s for Best Musical, Direction, Book, Score and Featured Actor and a Grammy Award for its Original Score.
