‘Spring Awakening’ coming to The City 

SHN has announced that the national tour of "Spring Awakening," this year’s best new musical and winner of eight 2007 Tony Awards, will launch at San Francisco’s Curran Theatre in the fall of 2008.

The show marks the fifth, previously unannounced, production of the 2007-08 Best of Broadway season. Based on an 1891 play by Frank Wedekind and featuring an original score by Grammy-nominated recording star Duncan Sheik and Steve Sater, the musical tells the story of kids trying to break loose and adults trying to hold on.

The show won several Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Director, Best Book of a Musical, Best Score and Best Featured Actor in a Musical, John Gallagher Jr.

Other shows in the upcoming Best of Broadway season include "The Wiz," "The Color Purple," "A Midsummer Night’s Dream" and "The Drowsy Chaperone."

Tickets for "Spring Awakening" are now available as part of the Best of Broadway subscription series. For subscription information, visit www.shnsf.com or call (415) 551-2050 or toll free at (877) 797-SUBS.
