Overview

The official companion to the Broadway musical

A heart-pounding score. A heartrending story. A barrier-breaking fusion of morality, sexuality, and rock&roll. No wonder Spring Awakening has awakened audiences like no other musical in years.

Based on the infamous 1891 Frank Wedekind play and featuring an original score by Grammy-nominated recording star Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater, Spring Awakening is a story of uncontrollable emotions and undeniable passions, of first loves and lasting regrets. Haunting and electrifying, the show celebrates the unforgettable journey into adulthood with a power and a poignancy that you will never forget.

Spring Awakening: In the Flesh is more than just a companion book — it's a new opportunity to experience the show. Designed to resemble a vandalized book, this beautiful volume offers more than one hundred photographs, handwritten drafts of hit songs, original sketches of costumes and sets, an annotated, unabridged libretto, and unprecedented access to the hit show, making Spring Awakening: In the Flesh a must-have for fans of all ages.

Editorial Reviews

This imaginatively created hardcover serves as the official companion volume to a Broadway musical with a most unlikely background. Spring Awakening originated as a scandalous 1891 play by Frank Wedekind. Banned in many cities, it survived only one early performance in New York. Undeterred by that contentious history, Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater mounted a new musical version in 2006 that made a rapid, smooth transition to the Great White Way. Spring Awakening: In the Flesh simulates a vandalized book, presenting the songs, costumes, sets, libretto, and other show facets in entertaining, interactive ways.
