It’s like School of Rock only it’s nothing like School of Rock.
Spring Awakening is, as the title suggests, a musical explanation of the birds and the bees. Only it follows the trajectory of Mean Girls’ “if you do touch each other, you *will* get chlamydia… and die.” (Thank you, Coach Carr.) Like every teen soap ever, sex results in the certain destruction of you, your house and your immediate family. (That or you get Dawson.)
There are some uplifting bits, though, you get to see a lot of chair throwing, stamping, tubthumping, sweary stuff. And teen suicide. Which amongst the other angst is almost a reprieve (Yes! Please! End the awful torture of your lives!)
