Spring Awakening

Fighting Chance Productions are rounding out their season in May with the Tony-award winning musical, Spring Awakening!

This Broadway blockbuster features songs by Duncan Sheik, and was the show that launched the careers for Glee's Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff (Glee, Looking). Set in early 19th century Germany, the controversial material is based on a book that was banned in 1891 due to its depiction of topics like abortion, suicide, homosexuality, child abuse, and rape. Its exploration of teenage sexuality was ahead of its time.

Check out the Tony award performance below:

Fighting Chance Productions' Spring Awakening runs from April 30 - May 17 at the Jericho Arts Centre. You can purchase tickets online here.
