Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Spring Awakening is the best play ever written about teenagers, and Jonathan Franzen's fraught yet buoyant translation is the best I've ever read. In a culture where lies about adolescence prevail, this funny and honest play is more relevant than ever. Spring Awakening is essential reading." —Christopher Shinn

    A reviewer

    Frank Wedekind was definetly a head of his time when he written this beautiful play. Epsecially at his time but it even fits in now in these days too. Many years ago this play was actually consider too racy to be performed on stage. The cenors wouldn't permit it at first, but today it a huge hit in Broadway and won so many Tony awards. The story takes place in the late 1891 set in Germany. About sexual maturity of youths at a time when teachers & parents want to repress those urges or even talk about sex to their kids.'Ofcourse it's a huge mistake for anyone to do at any child. No matter what these urges will awake.' It leaves them clueless in the matter. Which has the main characters helpless of any knowledge of puberty,love and reproduction. This play is strong drama. It haves it's bit of humor. The ending was so great,sad and unforgetable moral. I give this book 2 thumbs up. It is so worth the reading. The play will leave you thinking, understanding also open your your mind & heart. There'd nothing wrong with that at all.

    Lol to this description

    All it says is that the play is as disturbing now as it was before. Okay? I dont think that is going to hook any readers. Loved the play and I am a huge Jonathan Groff fan. I bet he will become even more popular after becoming a Disney Prince! The adapter of the play really seems like the kind of guy I would like to have a conversation with. You should read his little snidbit in that ten dollar spring awakenkng book
