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 guess we get what we paid for. The acting was so-so. The worst part about the play is that ... there is not one character who I can sympathize with. I don't like any of the characters in there, not even the doctor, who stomps and yells at the top of his voice. There are times when two or more characters are screaming at each other at the top of their lungs, I can't figure out what any one of them is saying. I can understand if it lasts for a few seconds, but no, it goes on and on. I could have done better spending the money on a movie.
Quotes & Highlights
- Sand in the Air was a semifinalist in the 2008 Next Generation Playwrights Contest.
For the first time in its 65 year history, the Morgan-Wixson Theatre is choosing to premiere an original play by an experienced and up-and-coming playwright, Brian Raine. Brian has written several plays and a winner of the 2007 Project StageLight for In the Name of the Son, and a finalist in the 2009 Tennessee Williams Literary Festival for Upon the Midnight.
When a young doctor in a remote factory town on the Tex-Mex border is accused of sexual misconduct in his consulting rooms he learns that corporate politics can override the course of justice. With satirical humor, the play explores the ever-increasing limits and distortions of personal freedom in a world manipulated by corporate and political controls.
Sand in the Air was inspired by an actual Texas court case.
