Spring Awakening @ The Kennedy Center's Eisenhower Theater

Even though there was no real introduction to this musical in the Playbill passed out before the performance, just reading the titles of the songs gives you the the basic plot. This is a coming of age piece about teenagers trying to break away from the repression of their parents and the consequences of their own hormonal actions. The music was phenomenal and how could it not be with titles like "The B**** Of Living", "Touch Me", "The Word of Your Body" and "Totally F*****". The punk-rock like performances really struck a chord with me. I hope everyone gets to see this before it leaves town because you will be moved by it and be glad you are no longer a teenager.
