First let me say that this show is mostly 5-star: the acting, the voices, the amazing choreography, costumes, staging, etc -- all are deserving of the highest praise.

I would love to give a five star review overall, but I must unfortunately...continued

The story line of teenage angst and occupation with sex, was strong, and unexpected to the audience. The voices were strong and the acting very good, especially considering the ages of the cast. There was very creative choreography. Go, but...continued

The music often over-powered the singers. The acting and staging were excellent. Please turn up the individual microphones.

Hmmmm...it was 'DIFFERENT' is the best way I can describe Spring Awakening, verging on the 'bit weird'. "It wasn't quite what we thought it was going to be" was the consensus from our group of 4. It was set in the late 1800s and therefore the...continued

I'm sure I would have enjoyed this more if I could have heard what the characters were saying/singing. (I have no problems with my hearing.) I had great seats, close to the stage. The sound was such that the words were indecipherable. I got the...continued

I give this 4.5 stars...it was a great performance, the leads were really outstanding! I first saw Spring Awakening about 5 or 6 years ago at the Balboa Theater. Because the Cygnet theater is smaller, I felt more "absorbed" into the story. ...continued

Play was OK, maybe 3 stars, but upped to 4 stars because the leading male & female actors were terrific - great voices. Also, our first time in Old Town Theatre - very nice, and we got great seats.

Since the theatre is relatively small, there is not a bad seat in the house. I have seen a different production of this show many times, so I found myself always comparing it to the other production. The lead female singers were good. The lead...continued

The description sounded funny and uplifting. Instead, it was a story of incest and brutality - very depressing. We left at the intermission. The lead male singer had a beautiful voice, the lyrics in most of the other songs were indistinguishable.

The play and actors were very good. It's amazing how old the play is but is still relevant today. The Cygnet is a nice, intimate theater so there really aren't any bad seats.

This is an interesting and provocative show that touches on the coming of age struggles teens have been universally dealing with for centuries. The cast and staging were excellent. My primary criticism would be that the music, although haunting,...continued

Easy to get tickets. However with gold star you were not able to select your seat location. Great play at the cygnet in old town
