Washington Blade: Spring Awakening

Surprisingly, it’s a plaintive ballad that haunts both acts of “Spring Awakening,” the explosive trail-breaking rock musical now onstage in an excellent production by the Keegan Theatre. “The Word of Your Body” is sung by two pairs of young lovers who are about to dive into the dangerous and mysterious world of sex. With a fascinating blend of naiveté and awareness, they sing, “O, I’m gonna be wounded. O, I’m gonna be your wound.”

Chesapeake Taste: Spring Awakening

Each aspect of “Spring Awakening” comes together beautifully to create a performance that will have audiences enthralled as the story unfolds onstage, and leave them singing the show’s songs long after the final bows.

DC Theatre Scene: Spring Awakening

Keegan Theatre…presents a production which renders every ounce of Spring Awakening’s fabulous intention with truth and pizzazz, and, in the best sense of the word, does justice to the show.

MD Theatre Guide: Spring Awakening

Spring Awakening at the Keegan Theatre is a highly unusual show; it is based upon a play written over a hundred years ago by Frank Wedekind that was considered highly scandalous at the time with its themes of teenage hormones, homosexuality, masochism, sexual abuse, abortion, and suicide. By today’s standards this play is still cutting-edge theatre.

Brightest Young Things: Spring Awakening

It’s easy to forget while living out the snug comforts of early adulthood what is was like to be fifteen. Just as by the time fall rolls around, we lose sight of that first deliriousness of winter tumbling suddenly into spring. We forget all too quickly that heady sensation of life suddenly in bloom.

Washingtonian: Spring Awakening

There’s something special about a show that reaches its satisfying climax as a bunch of teenagers jump around the stage, gamely singing, “Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.”
