Spring Awakening brings Broadway to Liverpool
Date Posted: 24/01/11
Musical fans looking for weekend theatre breaks in Liverpool might want to consider seeing a Broadway and West End classic when it arrives in the city next week.
What We Did Next is bringing Spring Awakening to the Unity Theatre from Wednesday February 2nd to Saturday February 5th.
The production is a new adaptation of the original German play, which was written in 1891, and is one of the most controversial ever produced.
It tells the story of a group of teenagers who are confused by emotional maturity and a lack of guidance from their parents, leading to possible disastrous consequences.
Duncan Sheik and Steven Sate are on hand to retell the tale, using witty dialogue and a contemporary soundtrack, which contrasts heavily with its original 19th century German roots.
Following this, the Unity has a packed February schedule, with musical drama Songs for a New World, family show Storm in a Teacup and comedy A People's Guide to World Domination all playing at the theatre.
