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.

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.
