Spring Awakening

Franz Wedekind's 19th-century German play about the sexual awakening of German teenagers seems an unlikely subject for a 21st-century musical, let alone a successful one. The music is loud, but appealing and so is the cast. Kudos, especially to Jonathan Groff, Lea Michele and John Gallagher,Jr. The show is ably directed by Michael Mayer [Eugene O'Neill]
