Virginia Repertory Theatre, the combined name for the former Barksdale Theatre and Theatre IV, is set for the first production under its new moniker. “Spring Awakening,” winner of eight Tony Awards, examines the journey from youth to adulthood as a group of German teenagers begin to discover their sexuality. The musical is based on the 1892 Frank Wedikind play — originally banned in Germany because of its portrayal of topics such as abortion, homosexuality, rape, child abuse and suicide — and features a score by Grammy Award-winner Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater. The play isn’t for the faint of heart and contains strong language, sexual situations and partial nudity. “Spring Awakening” opens June 15 at the November Theatre at Virginia Rep Center (formerly the Empire Theatre) and runs until July 22. $41-$44. va-rep.org.
