Based on Frank Wedekind’s 1892 play, the musical, according to press notes, focuses "on a group of German students as they come of age, exploring their sexuality, morality, and desire to be heard amongst a world of unresponsive adults." Duncan Sheik composed the music, with Steven Sater writing the book and lyrics.
