Spring Awakening won eight 2007 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. With direction by Michael Mayer and choreography by Bill T. Jones, the musical is based on Frank Wedekind's 1891 expressionist play. The musical made its world premiere Off-Broadway at the Atlantic Theater Company in June 2006. It transferred to Broadway the following November, where it continues to play to packed houses at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre.
