Spring Awakening Announces Early Closure!

The show had originally been booking until October 31, having transferred to the Novello Theatre from the Lyric Hammersmith on March 21. It will have played for only ten weeks in the West End by the time it closes.

Frank Wedekind’s groundbreaking 1890s play was a daring exploration of teenage sexual awakening set against a backdrop of religious and parental repression. Acclaimed 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 by the predominantly young cast combine to create an exhilarating energy that drives a remarkably compelling and timeless story.
