The award-winning musical “Spring Awakening” is a rock musical with music by Duncan Sheik and a book and lyrics by Steven Sater. It is based on the 1891 German play Spring Awakening by Frank Wedekind, whose work, which often criticizes bourgeois attitudes (particularly towards sex), is considered to anticipate expressionism and was influential in the development of theatre of the absurd. Wedekind was also a life-long guitar player and surely would have been a rock star today. Hence, the 21st-century musical blends the 19th-century play with an alternative rock score.
