On Friday we announced that Spring Awakening has absolutely 18 weeks of performances . . . starting today! That’s right, we’ve added two additional weeks to our schedule. It just goes to show that anything and everything can change on Broadway.
Of course, we let our biggest fans, The Guilty Ones, in on the secret before anyone else (which is just another reason for you to join, if you haven’t already). When we confirmed the extension we sent them an email with a special ticket link so they had the first rights to the best seats in the house. Our official (and final) closing date is now January 24th.
I know what you’re wondering; why an extension and why now? Truthfully, the stars just aligned for us. Ken announced a strictly limited engagement because another show was scheduled to come into the Brooks Atkinson Theatre right on our heels (he even blogged about it here). Waitress recently adjusted their schedule, leaving us with two extra weeks that we couldn’t ignore. With the overwhelming fan response to the show Ken knew he had to pounce on the opportunity.
Do we wish Spring Awakening could run forever and ever? Of course! But an extra two weeks is still pretty stellar.
Are you coming to see us during the extension? Tweet @_alicerix which day you plan to attend!
Only 6 days left until opening night of Spring Awakening!
