Broadway Play "Spring Awakening" in SC

"Spring Awakening"

The Tony and Grammy-winning Broadway musical coming to the Peace Center in Greenville, SC March 16-21 at 7:30 pm.

Broadway’s most talked about new musical and one of the biggest Tony winners in years is coming to Greenville, SC in two weeks! March 16-21st, 2010 at the Peace Center. SPRING AWAKENING tells the story of three teenagers coming of age in oppressive 19th century Germany. It is a story of first love, lasting regrets, and celebrates the unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with a power, a poignancy and a passion you will never forget.

The show has received rave reviews across the country, been produced in 14 countries around the world, and was recently named "the most important musical of the last decade" by the New York Times. The Denver Post called the Grammy-winning score by Duncan Sheik "the best original score since West Side Story." Tickets are just $35-$65 and can be purchased here:

This musical is not for children under 13 years age due to brief and partial nudity and strong language. To see what audience members thought of the show in nearby Charlotte, NC, view this video:
