Theater Latté Da presents in partnership with the University of Minnesota Department of Theatre Arts and Dance, SPRING AWAKENING, with book and lyrics by Steven Sater, music by Duncan Sheik, directed by Peter Rothstein, music direction by Denise Prosek, and choreographed by Carl Flink. The production will run through May 6th.
Spring Awakening is a dynamic rock adaptation of Frank Wedekind’s expressionist play about a group of teenagers coming of age in an uncomprehending world. Banned when the play first premiered in 1891, the contemporary musical is still provocative in its uncompromising gaze at the trials, tears, and exhilaration of the teen years. Winner of eight Tony Awards and hailed as Best Musical of the Year by the New York Times, New York Post, Star Ledger, Journal News, New York Observer and USA Today, Spring Awakening is a celebration of the rebellious imperatives of youth.
Tickets range from $29-$39 and can be purchased at the University of Minnesota Tickets and Events or online here.
