Stray Dog Theatre presents Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater's Tony Award-winning rock musical Spring Awakening Oct. 4-20 at Tower Grove Abbey in St. Louis, MO.
The modern folk-infused rock adaptation of Frank Wedekind’s 19th century expressionist play portrays a group of young students coming of age in an uncomprehending world," according to press notes. "Banned when first introduced, this controversial classic is still provocative as a contemporary musical in its uncompromising view of teenage angst and exhilaration. Winner of eight Tony Awards including Best Musical,
Spring Awakening is a celebration of the rebellious imperatives of youth."
