Spring Awakening is a rock musical based on the 1891, controversial German play Spring Awakening by Frank Wedekind. Set in late 19th-century Germany, the musical tells the story of young adults discovering the inner and outer tumult of teenage sexuality. In the musical, alternative rock is employed as part of the folk-infused rock score.Dream Theater Co. Event Page for SPRING AWAKENING
