Following a sensational European premiere at the Lyric Hammersmith, Spring Awakening transfers to the West End from 21 March.

Frank Wedekind's groundbreaking 1890s play was a daring exploration of teenage sexual awakening set against a backdrop of religious and parental repression. Writer Steven Sater and songwriter Duncan Sheik's new musical version retains the period setting of the original and introduces a superb collection of contemporary songs that serve to express the private anguish and ecstasy of the young characters. Stunning 21st century design and superb performances combine to create an exhilarating energy that drives a remarkably compelling and timeless story.
