Q Cinema proudly debuts its new live theatre arm QLive! with this special collaboration with Bass Performance Hall.

     First performed under heavy censorship in Germany in 1906, Frank Wedekind’s Spring Awakening: A Children’s Tragedy closed after one night in New York City in 1917 amid public outrage and charges of obscenity. The play’s content was radical indeed: teenage  sex, suicide, abortion, masturbation, sadomasochism. But even more radical was the unsentimental and brutally authentic comedy with which Wedekind treated it.

     The story traces the dawning sexual awareness of four teenagers: Melchior, Moritz, Wendla and Hansy, who, in their painfully funny contradictions – they are at once too innocent and not remotely innocent at all – remain fresh and unsettling even in our own sex-saturated culture.

     This one-night-only performance takes place at 8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 8 at the McDavid Studio, part of the Bass Performance Hall Complex, at 301 E. Fifth St. Tickets are $10 (free with a student I.D.).

     The show was also adapted as a Broadway musical in 2007, winning 8 Tony Awards. The musical hits the boards at Bass Performance Hall Tuesday, Nov. 9 and 10. Tickets for the Broadway musical are available at www.basshall.com.
