Saw this astounding piece of theater in its first preview Wednesday night. Might put up a review, but the short version is see this show! It’s smart, sexy, and sneaks up on you wouldn’t believe. Masterfully done by what I consider to be the leading musical theater production company in the Twin Cities. Playing at Pantages Minneapolis through Feb 9. 2014.

I seriously loved this production.

This one seemed fairly obvious the scene when Moritz kills himself. Everytime I’ve seen this scene it has made me cry, with one exception, when I saw the show at Theater Latte Da I was so emotionally wrecked I couldn’t even cry. The way that the actor playing Moritz said “I’ll tell them I’m ready now, I’ll be an angel.” honestly haunts me. Having experienced the suicide of a close friend this scene has always resonated personally with me. The picture is from Over the Moon Productions.

I miss this.

This has been the easiest so far. I truly cannot speak highly enough of this production, I so wish it was still going on. The cast was flawless, the direction new and innovative, and the space that this was produced in was perfect. Such a beautiful production, with all of these factors contributing to how amazingly well this cast did. So here are the photos that show the most cast members.

The first two photos are “Bitch of Living” and the Last one is “Totally Fucked”.

Okay so this one was hard, but I’m answering it as my favorite Hanschen and Ernst pair. I think that Andy Mientus and Ben Moss had the best chemistry together.

although in a close second is Grant Sorenson and Jack Tillman, they were great and I’m just looking for another reason to share this lovely photo

I completely agree, we should start work on a time machine.

so-let-that-be-my-story:

I would use it for the sole purpose of seeing this production of Spring Awakening at least once a day.

It may not be cool, but it’s so where I live.

Day 13…Favorite Ilse…

Well this one is split, I love Lauren Pritchard’s voice, I think in song she was the perfect Ilse, but as far as acting goes, I just never understood why Ilse was so darn happpy, she was abused, molested, kicked out of her house, and yet she is still childlike? It didn’t make sense to me, thus part two, my favorite portrayal of Ilse from an acting standpoint was Larissa Gritti in the (you guessed it) Theater Latte Da production, she brought out a darker side of Ilse that neither broadway nor the tour versions did.

Day 9…Favorite Moritz…Tyler Michaels

Out of every Moritz I have seen there has been no one who has touched me so much. He definitely had a different take on Moritz, as many people in this production did on many of the characters. There are two distinct moments that stick out to me about his performance. The note held at the end of “And Then There Were None” was heartbreaking.  Also I have heard the line “I’ll tell them, I’m ready now, I’ll be an angel.” many times but in the Theater Latte Da production, it struck me, struck me into a big ol’ ball of emotion. He was a one of the top reasons I saw the production as many times as I did.

Day 3…Best Song…Bitch of Living. I really truly love every song from this musical except for one, but you’ll have to wait to see which one that is. I love the deeper more serious ones, but I love love love this song. A) Its super catchy B) Every production I’ve seen this song has had awesome choreography C) Its 3 minutes filled with every masturbation metaphor ever. Love it. The pictures are from the Theater Latte Da production. Carl Fink was the choregrapher and the man is a genius, just saying.
