Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This small companion book by Steven Sater (a.k.a the lyricist who penned the cryptic, poetic, and often unintelligible words to Spring Awakening) is a GREAT resource for any actor or other artist who wants to be able to bring new depth and layers to their performance of the material. His writing is somewhat dense at times (though that should come at no surprise...) but it is filled with images, clarifications, and suggestions that will help you make strong, deep choices. Highly recommend!

This book is very helpful for the curious listener or the thespian getting in touch with their Spring Awakening character. Steven Sater gives great explanations for each of his beautiful lyrics and even shares a few of the original lyrics which were changed. The book itself is small, but definitely worth the money.

I for one am someone who loves to know the creative process behind songs and various other ideas, so reading this was an absolute splendor for me. It came in great condition.

I recently performed in this show and used this book to get a little more background on the lyrics and their meaning. This show is rich with references that may be lost on the actor without this book. Definitely worth a read if you plan on performing this show or are just looking for more information about the show!

By Redfeld on September 29, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is insightful about each song and their origins on top of what Sater's intentions were with certain lyrics. The only complaint is that its a bit short. Its an easy book to finish in one sitting. Its great if you want to learn more about the music or if you're actually in a production and want to know what the hell you're singing.
