nyaS

sa cast

Directed by IRA BAUER-SPECTOR

Music Directed by PATRICK MARION

Book & Lyrics by STEVEN SATER
Music by DUNCAN SHEIK
Based on the play by FRANK WEDEKIND

Winner of 8 TONY Awards, including BEST MUSICAL,
SPRING AWAKENING celebrates the unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood
with a power, poignancy, and passion that you will never forget.

Adapted from Frank Wedekind's 1891 expressionist play about the trials, tears, and exhilaration
of the teen years, it has been hailed as the "Best Musical of the Year" by the New York Times, New York Post,
Star Ledger, Journal News, New York Observer, and USA Today.

SPRING AWAKENING is not recommended for children under 13 years of age.

What the CRITICS are saying:

Charlene Baldridge (see full review)
"..one comes home more impressed than ever over the quality of San Diego’s youthful performers. This opportunity to see the younger and the older, more experienced kids back-to-back is a rare privilege indeed"
The company ... is impressive, with Koppman-Gue providing a sensitive, vocally excellent Melchoir, who seems genuinely shocked at his own capacity for violence. Nadia Guevara portrayed Wendla, puzzled by the changes in her body. Guevara, whose credits include Moonlight Stage Productions and New Village Arts, is a fine singer, with presence.
Jeff Smith, San Diego Reader
"...director Ira Bauer-Spector's choices [work]. He has the cast sit in the audience. They drift on and off in always fluid, kaleidoscopic patterns."
Fifteen-year-old Ian Brinistool, who won a Craig Noel Award in 2009, heads the [red] cast as Melchior and gets all the perplexity, and slender hope, in the character

Pat Launer, San Diego Theatre Reviews - BEST BET

... the production packed a major wallop.... Very satisfying performances all around.
