spring awakening song


“But there’s nowhere to hide from the ghost in my mind
It’s cold in these bones of a man and a child
And there’s no one who knows and there’s nowhere to go
There’s no one to see who can see to my soul.”

Aneurin Barnard performing “The Mirror-Blue Night” as Melchior in Spring AwakeningWest End, 2009

That great thing about cast recordings is when people listen to them before they see a musical. They stage their own unique version of the musical all in their heads! How the characters react the dance breaks..EVERYTHING!! I don't know about you but I think it's magical that one musical can have so many different versions because of what people create in their heads. And that is what makes musical theatre magical!

me, when i have a slightly better day than normal: and i also want to thank michael arden for not directing word of your body (reprise) as comedic, bless you 

List of lyrics in Musical Theater that broke my heart...

5.”Alabanza. Alabanza a doña Claudia, señor” - In The Heights.

6.”And when my time is up, Have I done enough?Will they tell my story?” -Hamilton.
