SPRING AWAKENING ROCKS!!!

I have seen Spring Awakening several times and each time I am amazed that a play that was written in 1891 touches so many of the feelings that the youth of today experience in everyday life. The play is brilliantly written. The music brings the play in to our generation. The music is beautifully written and the cast is wonderful. The voices of the cast mesh to make this a memorable experience. I have found that each time I see this show I go through the same emotions - laughter, sadness, joy and excitement. I have been to numerous Broadway shows (Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, Rent, Cats, etc.) and this is the most original play by far. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to experience something that is new, fresh and exciting. I also want to say that the cast has incredible vocals and it is a pleasure just to hear them sing.

BEST NEW MUSICAL I'VE SEEN

Hey...just saw this show in NYC last week....loved it. Fresh, ENERGETIC, moving, incredibly talented vocalists. While the content gets a little heavy, there is enough subtle humor to lighten it up. Young cast members do an incredible job and actors playing the "adults" are fantastic in switching personalities as they have to portray several different adults in the lives of these teenagers. A great way to show younger people that Broadway is very relevant as an art form to their generation. Go see it!

AN AMAZING SHOW...AMAZING CAST!

I have had the pleasure of seeing this show 6 times and I will be going back. I have been a theater buff for over 30 yrs and I haven't seen anything this FRESH and ORIGINAL since I saw the original production of "A CHORUS LINE" in 1975. The first time I saw 'Spring Awakening" I remembered feeling the same rush of excitement, that WOW, this is something different, a breakthrough for the American Musical theater. The cast is Amazing, led by Jonathan Groff, Lea Michele and the incrediable John Gallagher Jr. He gives one of the best performances I have seen in a long time. Everyone should see this AMAZING show!

TALENTED CAST GETS UPSTAGED BY BAD STAGING

A big disappointment. Think "Rent" during 1890's Germany with cheesy use of hand held microphones and every other stage device thrown in to "contemporize" the story. Great talent. Disappointing show.
