Based on the eponymous 1973 bestselling book by Dr. Oliver Sacks, Awakenings is a touching musical journey that draws both on source material and personal experience. Set primarily in a Bronx hospital from 1966 to the end of 1969, it tells the true story of the eminent neurologist Dr. Oliver Sacks, who received worldwide acclaim for bringing new hope to survivors of the “sleeping-sickness” epidemic of the 1920s.
