LIVE Theatre: "Spring Awakening" by Frank Wedekind
Translated by Guest Artist Douglas Langworthy October 4, 5, 6, 7, 11, 12, 13, 14; 7:30 p.m.
Premiering in 1906, Spring Awakening follows the sexual awakening of a group of 14-yr olds. The source for a Broadway musical, this cutting-edge classic launched the 20th century avant-garde theatre and was so boldly honest that it was not performed without censorship for sixty-three years.
A “tragedy of childhood,” Spring Awakening is about the springtime of life, and it is clear that being a teenager a century ago was no easier than being a teenager nowadays. The 13 members of the cast may speak in starchy language and wear old-fashioned clothes, but sexual discovery, parental pressure, and youthful angst are entirely recognizable.
The production is the Colorado premiere of Spring Awakening in a new translation by Denver Center Theatre’s Douglas Langworthy. Guest Artists: Dramaturgy: Allison Horsley, LMDA; Translation: Douglas Langworthy, SDC, professional director.
