Young vs. old. It’s a constant struggle.

It’s also the root of the conflict in “Spring Awakening,” the Tony Award-winning rock musical that will be performed this spring at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College. Set in late-nineteenth century Germany, the musical focuses on teenagers who are discovering the inner and outer tumult of sexuality.

For the play’s main character Melchior Gabor, sex is purely hedonistic and physical. That does not sit well with members of the older generation, however, who opt for a more conservative approach.
