Set in a small 19th century German town, Melchior, Wendla, Moritz and the rest of their classmates begin to experience changes that confuse and fascinate them, but coming from a society where discussions regarding sex, fantasy, homosexuality, abuse and alike are deeply frowned upon, the students are confronted with the struggle of dealing with these changes without guidance. The blended sound of both rock and roll and folk music heighten the stakes to make this show a theatrical experience like no other.
“Sheik’s dreamy melodies seem unstructured by conventional musical theater standards, and Sater’s lyrics can tend toward the arcane. But there’s a cracked poetry in evidence that fits the material and the painful introspectiveness of adolescence, making the show’s youthful spirit feel sincere and heartfelt.” – Variety (June 2006)
