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

<p>Modern city life starts to prove too much for one middle-aged couple living on New York City's Upper East Side during an intense summer heat wave and a prolonged garbage strike -- they're cracking under the strain of the rat race! A true master of his craft, Simon has a gift for taking a weighty subject and, without losing sight of its basic seriousness, treating it with wit, compassion and sympathetic humor.</p>
<p>Neil Simon's "The Prisoner of Second Avenue," which debuted on Broadway in 1971, is the story of a neurotic New York advertising salesman named Mel Edison who loses his job after 20 years, and has a difficult time adjusting to working from home and allowing his wife to become the breadwinner. As Mel realizes he is no longer in control of his world, he's falls apart. With Neil Simon wielding the pen, Mel's pain is the catalyst for huge laughs as well as heartfelt empathy.
