The sights and sounds of musical theater are always spectacular, but what about the scent? To create a truly multi-sensory experience for their audience, University of Mary Washington in Virginia chose Air Aroma to provide scenting during their current production of Spring Awakening.
Spring Awakening burst onto the musical theater scene in 2006, won 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and has since become one of the most beloved and widely-performed shows around. Based on the 1891 play of the same name, Spring Awakening is set in 19th century Germany and follows the story of teenagers discovering their sexuality in a repressed society. With an alternative rock score by Duncan Sheik, known best for his 1996 song "Barely Breathing", the original Broadway production starred Lea Michele, now best known as Rachel Berry on the TV show Glee.
