The Year in Theater


Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff in Spring Awakening.  

9. Bill T. Jones’s Choreography in ‘Spring Awakening’
Thanks to Frank Wedekind’s classic coming-of-age story, Duncan Sheik’s power pop, and a sexy young cast, Spring Awakening lands on Broadway this week loaded with audience-pleasing weapons. Still, nothing in it shines quite as bright as the dances choreographed by Bill T. Jones. In song after song, he translates the twitchy energy of hormonal adolescents into stagewide physical movement: a kind of exquisite mass freak-out. The show wouldn’t be on Broadway without it.
