After listening to the Spring Awakening Abum I downloaded months ago, I realized how wonderful it would be if someone would decide to do a local production of this Broadway musical in Manila.
I’m not talking about Ateneo’s “Middle Finger Po,” ok? That is just a total rip off of the Spring Awakening. I want a real version of Spring Awakening with Spring Awakening songs and not just local plays based on Spring Awakening.
You know, this play has actually been banned in Germany for tapping so many social taboos on being an adolescent in its story. But in 2006, a New York based production company finally gave it a run with an alternative rock musical score by Duncan Sheik. Interesting enough? 🙂
Spring Awakening is going to be in London, South Korea, Brazil, Sweden and Germany this 2009… So the question is, when will Manila’s turn be? I’m betting it’s not gonna be soon. That’s the problem with third world countries… they’re the last of the options. 🙁
To Trumpets, Stages, Repertory Philippines or any local theater group out there… tell me if you guys finally decide to take my idea.
Oh, btw, Hunter, you’re quite spectacular yourself. LoL 😉
