Last night, a bunch of my friends and I caught Pangdemonium!'s production of the Tony Award Winning Musical - Spring Awakening. And I must say I was delightfully pleased.Spring Awakening is a musical based on the controversial 1892 German play of the same title by Frank Wedekind, which tells the story of group of rebellious teenagers as they embark on a tumultuous journey of self-discovery. The play depicts one's experiences early on in life focused on various psychological, emotional, spiritual, and sexual "awakening". The Singapore cast is led by the talented duo of - Singapore musical heartthrob genius Nathan Hartono and the beautiful, multi-talented, Filipina dramatic prodigy Julia Abueva. Both of which I believe has done more than fair justice to the characters they portrayed - originally owned by none other than Jonathan Groff and Lea Michele on Broadway. Truly, Singapore is lucky to have such dramatic talents in their midst! Tracie Pang directs the play and I must say she did a brilliant job.
This is definitely one of the must watch plays of the year, so if you haven't had the chance to do so I highly suggest that you grab your tickets now will you still can.
