Can You Vague That Up For Me?

Welcome to the corner of Quirky and Kinky where you'll fall in love every time you open a book.

Have you seen this show???

So last night, Jen Armintrout (because she’s made of awesome) took me to Chicago to see the national touring company of Spring Awakening.

Best. Musical. Ever.

Seriously. It was the best show I’ve seen in ages. (Laughter, tears, chills – utter brilliance)

The show is set in Germany is 1891 and it follows the lives of several teenagers as they explore the issues of sexuality – both opposite and same sex relationships, religion, conformity, incest, suicide, abortion and a pile of other delightful topics. The music is brilliant and the lyrics are both funny and heart-rending. Here’s the thing…this show is depressing as hell and also weirdly hopeful.

If this show comes anywhere near your area, please do yourself a favor and go see it. I’m hoping the tour swings around to Michigan before it closes, because I’d go see it in a heartbeat.
