Spring Awakening by Baldwin Wallace University’s Musical Theatre Program
Baldwin Wallace University's nationally acclaimed music theatre program will stage a virtual production of the Broadway rock musical "Spring Awakening."
Set in late 19th-century Germany, "Spring Awakening" explores the turmoil of adolescent sexuality, with themes of isolation, control, trauma, identity and enlightenment as timely today as they were when the musical premiered on Broadway in 2006.

In 2106, my review of FRANKENSTEIN’S WAKE stated: “Holly Holsinger, in a tour de force performance, is captivating. Alone on stage during the entire performance, she transforms herself from a crazy sister of a wandering explorer/sailor into an ambitious scientist, to an abandoned soul desperate for companionship. Changes are highlighted by costume, makeup and lighting alterations. As characters die, thus increasing the character’s longing, they are wrapped in shrouds of white and piled at the top end of the runway stage, building a mound of isolation. The script and Holsinger restore Shelley’s original supernatural quality, rather than the sensationalized film’s interpretation.”
I went on to award her the Broadwayworld.com-Cleveland Honorable Mention: 2016 Outstanding Performance by A Female in Drama.
The show, as performed by Holsinger, will be streamed on October 30, 31, November 8, 14, 20 @ 7 PM, October 31 @ 10 PM.
