Spring Awakening took Broadway by storm when it debuted, winning eight Tony Awards (including Best Musical). Punctuated by an electrifying and hauntingly beautiful rock score by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater, Spring Awakening follows a group of teenagers as they navigate the confusing and often troubled waters of adolescence and their budding sexuality. Based on an Expressionist play that caused a scandal in 19th-century Germany, it's a bold and touching musical that captures the timeless and turbulent experience of youth transitioning to adulthood. The characters must grapple with issues like teen suicide, pregnancy and identity -- tough topics that remain as relevant as ever. Learn More

Excellent performance! The 4-person cast is amongst the best of ever seen perform this classic. Tennessee Williams is one of my favorite writers, but for those of you not familiar with him, you may want to read a play summary beforehand (he is not a "happy family" kind of writer). The seats from Goldstar were excellent -- 2nd row.
The Glass Menagerie is Tennessee Williams' most deeply personal and haunting play. Amanda Wingfield, a faded Southern belle, holds on tight to her two children. She pushes them to be more successful—in life and love. When her son Tom brings home a gentleman caller, his sister Laura is given hope. Their chance meeting becomes one of the sweetest and most heartbreaking stories ever told. Tennessee Williams' masterpiece is a touching tale of lost dreams, family bonds and survival.
