"Exhilarating.  A show that bristles with rawness, vitality and urgency.  Sater's book and lyrics seem to capture from within the uniquely teenage feeling that every emotion is the most tempestuous, frightening, passionate or exciting one ever experienced."

CHERRY AND SPOON hails SPRING AWAKENING  as, "fresh, young, energetic, passionate, intimate, and exciting, it's a must see."

"Breathtaking.  Sheik's iridescent music and Sater's imagistic lyrics make everyone recall when they, too, were young, unshakably set on radicalizing the world.  It's electrifying."

Winner of 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book, this breathtaking story by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater shines with what Entertainment Weekly called, "the most gorgeous Broadway score this decade."  Spring Awakening explores the journey from adolescence to adulthood with a poignancy and passion that is illuminating and unforgettable.  In the wake of the powerful message sent by the youth of America in the March for our Lives, there is no better time to remember the power of young idealism and bitter consequences of repression against a generation that is ready to stand-up and speak for itself.  With its hauntingly powerful alt-rock score and electrifying fusion of morality, sexuality, and tragedy, there has never been a better time to be exhilarated by the story of Spring Awakening.  Shoot the Glass Theater is proud to partner with The Lab Theater to bring this musical to life.
