This 2007 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical is based on the highly controversial and oft-censored 1891 play by German playwright Frank Wedekind.
In late 19th-century Germany, teenagers struggle to cope with the sexual mysteries of puberty. Moritz has been having dreams that he can’t explain - dreams that make him feel insane. When Melchior attempts to explain their sexual nature to him, they only get worse. Wendla attempts in vain to learn more about her body and her transformation to womanhood, but is instead forced to learn from experience. Melchior, the most handsome and intelligent boy in school, struggles to handle his changing emotions and give his friends the aid they need. Faced with sexual repression and an often-unjust class of adults, these teenagers attempt to walk the difficult road to emotional and physical maturity the best they can.
