***** Five stars for Spring Awakening

There are still tickets left for Friday and Saturday performances of our stunning end-of-year musical, SPRING AWAKENING. And this morning we got a real treat with a fantastic five-star review:

“Based on Frank Wedekind’s 1891 German play about repressed sexuality and its manifestations, Spring Awakening gets a a surprisingly refreshing production from MGA that mixes 19th century Germany with rock music. And does so exceptionally well.

In fact, Director Andrew Gowland’s reimagining of the 2006 Broadway musical is a gutsy masterpiece that feels like a true cult classic. The marrying of repression with rock music as its release is a powerful image and an enjoyable one to boot.

…This is a very contemporary production of Spring Awakening, exploring the confusions of adolescence and the chaos that can unfold as desire is repressed and unleashed. Its delivery is mature and reflective, combining raw emotion and simplicity.”

Read the whole here and then come and see the show! We are super proud of all our fantastic cast and hope that as many as possible can come and share the Spring Awakening experience this weekend – book tickets online now at www.edtheatres.com
