Spring Awakening, the musical adaptation of Frank Wedekind’s teen drama takes Frankfurt by storm
The merit for this goes to Ryan McBryde, who is the long-time in-house director at the English Theatre and is fondly remembered for contrasting plays such as ‘The Full Monty’ and ‘The Fox’. All in all, the Frankfurt production of “Spring Awakening” is convincing with its seething energy, touching melancholy and astounding professionalism.
