A new revival production of Spring Awakening will play at London’s Almeida Theatre this Christmas.
It’s been 11 years since the Olivier Award Winning Spring Awakening closed in the West End and now it’s making a comeback.
Almeida Theatre’s artistic director Rupert Goold is to direct a new production which will star Laurie Kynaston as Melchior and Amara Okereke as Wendla alongside a cast of recent graduates.
The revival will begin previews on 30 November running to 22 January with an official opening night on 14 December.
Spring Awakening, with music by Duncan Sheik and lyrics and book by Steven Sater, made its world premiere off-Broadway in 2006.
Based on the German play of the same name by Frank Wedekind, the original West End production played the Lyric Theatre and Novello Theatre in 2009 winning four Olivier Awards including Best New Musical.
