Spring's Awakening  

DESCRIPTION: The Brooklyn College Department of Theater presents Frank Wedekind's controversial masterpiece, Spring's Awakening at the New Workshop Theater. Described as one of the first plays to incorporate elements of expressionism, Spring's Awakening examines the beautiful and destructive world of adolescence in nineteenth century Germany through the eyes of a teenager named Melchior. Fraught with academic pressures and puberty, Melchior struggles to understand himself through interactions with his peers and the hypocritical professors that monitor his education. As he wanders through scenes of fantasy and reality, we follow, and simultaneously become engaged by the poetic lyricism of his voice and the innocence of his child-like inquisitiveness. Jonathan Hadley\'s innovative production combines elements of naturalism with puppetry and mask-work which makes for a truly theatrical experience. Criticized for its sexual content in Europe and the United States, the play has a history of censorship, but its exquisite representation of teenage perception speaks to its relevancy today.
