Winner of eight Tony® awards, including BEST MUSICAL, this groundbreaking rock musical retells the controversial German play from 1891.  The story follows a group of teenagers, including best friends Melchior and Moritz, on a quest of self-discovery, love, sexuality, friendship, and rebellion.  Holding a mirror up to our time, this is the must-see musical of a new generation. more info
