From the Ignite website: The regional premiere of the rock musical sensation that won 8 Tony awards comes to the Aurora Fox. This intense Broadway blockbuster musical, centers on sex, the adolescents who want to explore it and the adults who neglectfully keep the truths of sex from them…Sex in all its incarnations and darkest complications. Set in 19th-century small-town Germany, Spring Awakening’s tragic love story between innocent Wendla and bookish Melchior is a hard-hitting commentary on social repression that resounds plenty in the modern day, but with intense alternative rock music by Duncan Sheik, it’s also potent, electrifying theater.

WHY WE ARE EXCITED: Spring Awakening is one of the hottest new pieces of musical theatre to be produced in the last decade, and with the rights to the show becoming recently available, we are surprised more shows haven’t scrambled to snatch them up. At the same time, we can’t think of another company better equipped to handle it than the young, contemporary folks at Ignite, who dive head first into daring and especially risqué regional premieres. This one should be a great combination of heat and heart.
