Spring Awakening has extended its Almeida Theatre run. The show will now play an extra week – until 29 January 2022, with tickets on sale now.
The hit musical is directed by Rupert Goold and stars Laurie Kynaston (Melchior), Amara Okereke (Wendle), Nathan Armarkwei-Laryea (Hanschen), Asha Banks (Thea), Taylor Bradshaw (ensemble), Catherine Cusack (all the adult women), Carly-Sophia Davies (Ilse), Kit Esuruoso (Otto), Mark Lockyer (all the adult men), Bella Maclean (Martha), Emily Ooi (ensemble), Joe Pitts (Georg), Maia Tamrakar (Anna), Stuart Thompson (Moritz) and Zheng Xi Yong (Ernst).
Winner of the Tony and Olivier awards for best musical, Spring Awakening tells a story of adolescent anarchy, set to a score by Duncan Sheik (music) and Steven Sater (book and lyrics). It sees a group of teenagers – silenced and controlled by a censorious society – discover a new world of feeling and freedom outside the classroom, with beautiful and devastating consequences.
