New Production of Spring Awakening to Launch U.K. Tour in 2011

By Mark Shenton
01 Dec 2010

The Broadway musical Spring Awakening, based on Frank Wedekind's 1890s play of the same name, will be revived for a new U.K. touring production, to begin performances at Exeter's Northcott Theatre May 17, 2011, for a run through May 21.

It will then visit Edinburgh's Pleasance Theatre (May 24-25), Stirling's MacRobert Art Centre (May 26-28), London's Greenwich Theatre (June 7-12), Manchester's Lowry Theatre (June 14-15) and Norwich Playhouse (June 17-18).

Wedekind's play explores a story of teenage sexual awakening set against a backdrop of religious and parental repression. This musical version — written by Steven Sater with songs by Duncan Sheik — retains the period setting of the original and introduces a collection of contemporary songs that serve to express the private anguish and ecstasy of the young characters. First staged at Off-Broadway's Atlantic Theater in 2006, the musical subsequently transferred to Broadway's Eugene O'Neill Theatre, where it ran for two years and grossed over $50 million. It was first seen in Britain in a production at the Lyric Hammersmith in February 2009 that subsequently transferred to the West End's Novello Theatre.

The tour is presented by Sell a Door Theatre Company, and directed by Pip Minnithorpe (who recently directed Departure Lounge at Waterloo East Theatre) and choreographed by Cressida Carre.

In a press statement, co-producer David Hutchinson commented, "This is a very exciting project indeed, following great success on Broadway and on the West End. I've been a huge fan of the production since I saw it in New York in 2008, it is a timeless coming of age tale that will impress audiences for many years to come. Sell a Door are currently putting together a dynamic creative team to lead the UK debut tour."

Marc Evans’ high school 70s comedy Hunky Dory has started six weeks of principal photography in Wales. Minnie Driver stars as a drama teacher who mounts a rock ‘n roll version of Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Set in 1976, the hottest summer in living memory, Driver co-stars with Aneurun Bernard, winner of the 2010 Olivier award for best actor in a musical for the West End musical Spring Awakening.

Written by Laurence Coriat, Hunky Dory is produced by Jon Finn (Billy Elliot) and Dan Lupovitz (Death Defying Acts). Independent is handling international sales and eOne Films plans to release Hunky Dory in the UK in the spring or summer of 2011.

Like TV’s Glee, Hunky Dory is a musical. And it gives Driver a chance to display her skills as a singer (she has released two albums), along with an ensemble of young actors who cover music from David Bowie to ELO, the Beach Boys and Nick Drake in the service of a contemporary translation of Shakespeare’s tale. Joby Talbot (Is Anybody There?) is composer and Jeremy Holland Smith (Billy Elliot) is musical director.

The producers assembled a complex set of financeers, including Film Agency for Wales, The Wales Creative IP Fund, Eyepatch LLP, Panaramic LLP, The Aegis Film Fund, Atlantic Swiss Productions, Magna Films, Lipsync Productions, Greene Light Films, Middlemarch Partners, Brecon Media and support of the Welsh Assembly Government through the Single Investment Fund.


They didn't get his name right, but never mind. It's good to hear some news!

Hello :)
This is my first post in this community, it's great by the way.

Anyway i was wondering if any knew if there were any official recordings of the London cast available? I really wanted to see their show but because I live in Australia it just wasn't possible :(

Thanks for reading :)

I come bearing news about a project of mine that is starting to get off the ground. It's tentatively named SpringBlog. The intention is that it will provide news about ongoing productions of Spring Awakening while also providing records of information about past productions: e.g. cast lists for performances, archives of good links, etc. And it's entirely run by fan-submitted posts.

Obviously the "news" part doesn't really apply to the London production, but SpringBlog could still definitely use the presence of its fans (and there's a nice Charlotte/Aneurin sketch in the header ;) ) -- anyone who's willing could help a lot by looking through our calendar and posting any cast information you might have that isn't already up and by submitting some of your favorite articles, videos, fan creations, etc.

Consider this: aside from this hopefully being a nice resource for current fans, it'd be great if new fans of the show (like, perhaps, fans of a certain upcoming tour or... I know it's frightening... hold your breath... eventually the movie) might come there seeking news relating to the production they fell in love with, and in the process gain easy access to information about productions of the past -- so that the productions that got us interested in the show will continue to gain new appreciation long after their closing :)
