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

I thought the play was amazingly strong on making you feel for the boy as well as his dad. I think the actor who played the therapist lacked a bit of caring for the boy but still emoted a strong feeling for of empathy for him. I would totally recommend the play.
Equus, a young man’s unrelenting passion and devotion to that which modern society cannot comprehend or allow. A psychiatrist, searching for sanctuary and relief in ancient truths and myth. An act of despair and sacrifice - and the two are plummeted into the waking dream and living myth of horse.
Written in 1973, Equus was premiered in London at the Old Vic Theatre and then later at the National Theatre. Winner of the 1975 Tony Award for Best Play as well as the Drama Desk Award and New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, Equus has had several revivals on Broadway. The Morgan-Wixson is proud to present this show as the first production of our 2011-2012 season.
Written more than thirty years ago, Equus is full of metaphors for the struggle between the primitive and modern world, passion vs conformity, and man’s need to harness and control that which it cannot understand.
