The Tony-Award winning musical "Spring Awakening" launched the careers of Glee stars Leah Michelle and Jonathan Groff-and it also captured the attention of fans and critics for its' controversial themes.
Issues of suicide, child abuse, rape, abortion and teenage sexuality are all presented in the play. Heavy subject matter, but juxtaposed with a rock-and-roll score by Duncan Sheik.
Although the play seems contemporary, it is set in 19th century Germany. The Olney Theatre Center's production even features a bean-bag chair, and a character talks on a cell phone.
The show ran on Broadway for more than 3 years, and now makes its way to the Olney Theatre Center for a run ending on March 3.
In Monday's theater review, Maryland Morning's J. Wynn Rousuck and Tom Hall discuss The Olney Theatre Center's production of "Spring Awakening."
