Free `Spring Awakening’ event

Members of the Spring Awakening creative team will take part in a free “In Conversation” onstage event from 2 to 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 7 at the Curran Theatre, 445 Geary St., San Francisco. The team will discuss the development of this Tony Award-winning show.

The event, moderated by Jesse McKinley of the New York Times, is in conjunction with opening night of the launch of the Spring Awakening national tour as part of the SHN/Best of Broadway season.

Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Visit for information.

In other Spring Awakening news, iTunes released yesterday a live, six-song album of songs from the show performed at the Apple Store in New York. Performers include composer Duncan Sheik, new Broadway cast member Hunter Parrish, and original cast members John Gallagher Jr. (a Tony winner) and Lauren Pritchard.
