I suggested Springers on the myspace group. I don't really know why there is a need for a shortened version though. The title of the show really doesn't lend itself to the shortening bit.

My vote is also for "annoying". Is this the new flash in a pan, or what?

Only the annoying fan groups have a nickname. Don't do that to Spring Awakening.

Yeah, exactly. I like Spring Awakening, but I can already feel that I will probably get so annoyed by these obsessive fans.

some of the discussions on the fansites have been really intelligent posts, actually..these aren't annoying 12 year old girls. They're people who appreciate good art. God forbid that theatre speak to people!

Yet when someone on BWW says they don't like the show, fans get all riled up and tell those who dislike the show to "shut up." I'm not saying that the fans are not intelligent. I like the show, but I have seen people on myspace and BWW that are getting to be already very annoying.

Yeah there are plenty of intelligent fans, but what's the need to "name" yourselves? Is just being a simple fan not enough? Must you show to world how obsessed with SA you are?

That's it, RentBoy86! SAs (pronounced "essays"). It has a nice ring to it.

I think the fact that it doesn't lend itself well to names, is a good thing?

I'd vote for Springers.

Or a bad thing. Because you get lots of mundane names you get to sift through.

Aren't RENTheads, Jekkies, Shiz Kids, and Phans enough?

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go polish my "Mizzie 4 Life" button re: What should Spring Awakening Fans call themselves?

I agree that the idea of a name for fans is silly.

But out of the choices they listed, I like The Guilty Ones.

Half the names people come up with are almost as long as the title of the show. Rent Heads is even longer.
