Perez Reviews: Spring Awakening

no title

We did not enjoy the original Broadway production of Spring Awakeningfor many reasons. To recap: too dark, felt unfinished and felt like it belonged more off-Broadway.

So, we went in to this new revival with very low expectations and were very pleasantly surprised.

This new production – done with hearing and deaf actors – makes the show feel super fresh. There is much more going on this time around.

There’s also some much needed levity. There’s more humor in this one. And Spencer Liff‘s choreography and staging adds sooooo much to the show!

Michael Arden did a superb job directing and some truly standout performances from Camryn Manheim, Andy Mientus, Austin McKenzie and Katie Boeck.

Definitely worth seeing, even if didn’t like the original production!
