The 8-time Tony Award winning Broadway musical will play the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. 

Based on the 1891 Frank Wedekind play, the musical is a stirring combination of sexuality, morality and rock & roll that is captivating audiences across the nation like no other musical in years. Spring Awakening features an award-winning and evocative story with a score by Duncan Sheik, book and lyrics by Steven Sater, and original direction and choreography by Michael Mayer and Bill T. Jones, respectively.

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. 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.
