Omaha, NE—This week, UNO Theatre will begin its run of Spring Awakening, the hit rock musical by songwriter Duncan Sheik and playwright Steven Sater.  Based on the 19th century play of the same name by Frank Wedekind, Spring Awakening is the story of German adolescents struggling to understand sexual intimacy in a society that doesn’t even permit the thought of it.
