Spring Awakening is written by Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik and tells the story of adolescent anarchy, set to one of the most loved scores of the 21st century. A group of teenagers – silenced and controlled by a censorious society – discover a new world of feeling and freedom outside the classroom, with beautiful and devastating consequences.
Spring Awakening opened on Broadway at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre on 10 December 2006 starring Jonathan Groff, Lea Michele, and John Gallagher Jr. It won eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Direction, Book, Score and Featured Actor. It embarked on a North American tour in 2008.
The musical then opened in London at the Lyric Hammersmith on 23 January 2009, before transferring to the West End’s Novello Theatre in March that same year. It won 4 Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical. Spring Awakening was revived on Broadway in 2015 and in London in 2021.
Speaking on the anniversary concert, Duncan Sheik said “Spring
Awakening is the first musical I worked on that managed to get to
Broadway and then the West End. Being in London in 2009 for opening night at the Novello with that young and amazing cast was one of the highlights of my life.  It is more than exciting that 15 years on,
London gets to experience this anniversary concert and I’m honoured
that I can be some small part of that.”
Steven Sater said “My youthful dream was to be a part of the theatre
in London. So for me, our brilliant original production of Spring
Awakening at the Lyric, and then at the Novello, was an answered prayer Fifteen years later, to bring back that production for a one-night-only anniversary concert, is like having that prayer answered all over again.”
Spring Awakening has direction by Jamie Armitage (SIX) and musical
direction by Nigel Lilley (Newsies, Next to Normal, The Witches).
