“Spring Awakening” Hooks Up With “Degrassi”

Spring AwakeningIf you live in the New York City area, then you might know that Spring Awakening is the new hot musical on Broadway. The musical, which is based on a play written more than 100 years ago, is a story of teenage self-discovery and is being praised for its gritty portrayal of adolescence and all of the challenges that go along with it.

So it’s only fitting that the cast of Spring Awakening teamed up with another show that so aptly portrays the reality of life for today’s teens, Degrassi: The Next Generation, on The N.

Last month in NYC, the cast of Spring Awakening and Degrassi got together for a frank discussion on everything teen: peer pressure, stress, sex, relationships, self-esteem…life. The panel discussion was introduced by none other than Zach Braff, and hosted by Rosie O’Donnell.
