Guess ya had to be there

I had a rather enjoyable evening with JT and P.Dave last night. P.Dave had tickets to see a musical at Heinz Hall called Spring Awakening. And since his wife, Ella was out of town, and the play would not have been appropriate for his 13 year old daughter, he invited us to go instead. Good call!
I will be the first to admit that the play was kinda raunchy. But it was really good. The musical is an adaptation of a book that was written in the earlier half of the 1900's. It was actually banned for many years because of the subject matter. The storyline is an exploration of early 20th century teenagers coming to terms with their sexuality. And the play covered a variety of topics surrounding the individual characters and their pre-dispositions.
The acting was good. The set was also amazing. And the music was quite catchy. Plus, it had a great blend of both modern and classical elements. And one of the more humorous songs was appropriately entitled "Totally F***ed".
So, if you ever get the chance to see it, it may be worth your while - if you don't mind the more adult material, of course.
