I have seen several productions of Spring Awakening and have to this one was top notch! If you have not seen the show, try to find a synopsis to help out. A lot happens in the last couple scenes and moves really quickly. A great production!!!

First, in this review I choose to separate the production from the play. This cast was incredibly energetic, intense, and able to bring credibility to a problematic script. Their singing was powerful. The staging, choreography, and costumes...continued

I did not know what to expect. nor had I heard any of the music. I was happily surprised. I loved it! The themes of this musical are of an 'adult' nature and are definitely not suitable for children or young teens. The actors did a great job and...continued

We were expecting a typically eclectic Chapman production, but were very pleasantly surprised. The singing talent of these students is outstanding.

I was very uncomfortable with the play and felt it was inappropriate in showing some scenes. The actors/actresses did a good job but I would never see this play again nor would I recommend it ever.

Spring Awakening was alright. There was some talent to be sure.
I did have difficulty making out many of the words in the songs. I'm not sure if that was due to the acoustics, or my age (61).
Personally, I prefer plays that are uplifting or...continued

Front row seats to a fresh and inspiring musical. The cast is extremely talented and the staging effective.
Would highly recommend, but beware of the provocative nature of subject matter.

This was my first time at this theater and have to say it was one of the best I've been too. Every seat is amazing no matter where you seat. The musical was really good and I have seen this musical over 10 times. The production was good, the set...continued

Great location, the theatre was very nice. We had second row seats, although the theatre is on the small side and all seats are pretty good. Play was awesome.
