We could only guess at what they will surprise us with this year!

So, yes, come for the food, tons of different dishes from the many Latin communities, the salsa and merengue on dozens of stages set up throughout, and the electric atmosphere that is Calle Ocho en Carnaval!

Spring Awakening: The Hit Coming-of-Age Rock Musical
March 17 - 20, 2016

Spring Awakening in South Florida in March 2016

Spring Awakening took Broadway by storm when it premiered, winning eight Tony Awards (including Best Musical).

Based on an German play that shocked and scandalized 19th-century audiences, it's now a bold and touching musical that captures the timeless and turbulent experience of adolescence.

Punctuated by an electrifying and hauntingly beautiful rock score by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater, Spring Awakening follows a group of teens as they navigate the confusing and often troubled waters of teenage angst and their budding sexuality. The characters grapple with such issues as teen suicide, pregnancy and self-identity -- topics that remain relevant to today's teens more than a century after the play was first written.

When? March 17 - 20, 2016

Where? Broward Center for the Performing Arts - Amaturo Theater at 201 SW Fifth Avenue Fort Lauderdale

How Much? $45
