TODAY IN THEATRE HISTORY: In 2006, Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater’s musical Spring Awakening, based on the 1891 troubled teen drama by Frank Wedekind, opens on Broadway at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre. Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff star as teens Wendla and Melchior, who are drawn to each other in a world where parents, ministers and teachers create an atmosphere of shame, silence and ignorance. The production will go on to win eight Tony Awards, including ones for John Gallagher, Jr.’s performance as Moritz, Best Original Score and Best Musical.
