'Spring Awakening' Closing in January

Spring awakening 2 Playbill reports that Spring Awakening, the 2007 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical, Best Book, Best Score, Best Direction, and more, will close Jan. 18. Spring Awakening's cast album also earned a Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.

The producers said in a statement:

When this incredible journey began, who would have imagined, we'd play close to 900 Broadway performances, win eight Tony Awards, and recoup the show's investment in just eight months? Spring Awakening was a glorious challenge from the very start, a challenge that a remarkable creative team took on and transformed into a life-changing experience. And while our Broadway run will come to an end this January, Spring Awakening will continue to touch audiences across the country, through our national tour, and around the world, with productions soon to open in London, Vienna, Toronto, Helsinki and Seoul.

When Spring Awakening closes, it will have played 859 performances and 29 previews. Spring Awakening made its world premiere Off-Broadway at the Atlantic Theater Company in June 2006, then transferred to Broadway the following November. A national tour recently launched.
