“Spring Awakening”: U-M In the Round Productions.:
Dec. 2–4. Jack Rosenberg directs this new U-M student ensemble in its debut production, Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater’s Tony-winning 2007 rock musical. A brutally honest depiction of teen angst, rebellion, and budding sexual passion, it’s adapted from Frank Wedekind’s 1891 drama about a group of German adolescents whose sexual awakening is warped and thwarted by bourgeois adult society. One of the seminal works of modern theater, Wedekind’s play was banned as pornographic and not produced in full until the 1960s. 8 p.m. (Fri. & Sat.) & 2 p.m. (Sat & Sun.), U-M Walgreen Drama Center Arthur Miller Theatre, 1226 Murfin, North Campus. Tickets $10 (students, $6) at the Michigan League Box Office (muto.umich.edu) & at the door. 763–8587., . . . . . .
