This streamed production of Spring Awakening is co-produced by Broccoli Hall and Jake Egan O’Hara and features a host of incredible talent local to the Boston and New Hampshire areas, plus an incredible extended family and collaborators that includes Equity Stage Manager Elizabeth Yvette Ramirez* and cast members Alice Ripley* (Next To Normal; Tommy; Sunset Boulevard; Side Show, etc) and Beth Malone* (Fun Home, Unsinkable Molly Brown; etc) as “Adult Woman”; John Arthur Greene* (B’way revival West Side Story; OBC Matilda; OBC Tootsie; Company) as “Melchior”; Devon Stone* (nat’l tour of Spring Awakening) as Georg, and Tyla Collier* (off B’way: Sistas, Till) as “Anna”.
Spring Awakening is set in late 19th century Germany and tells the story of teenagers discovering their sexuality. The diverse and talented company shares this award winning musical through their own lens interweaving personal stories of discrimination, immigration, mental health, sexual identity and gender bias. In this unique production, face masks are used as a modern metaphor for the themes of censorship, silence against knowledge and silence against citizenship.
Tickets for all performances are $38.00 (plus applicable fees) per device and can be purchased at wordofourbodies.com.
This production is produced in partnership with MTI.
