oooo I'm listening to some of his music now. LOVE his voice. It's yummy <33

just as long as he can act, I am quite exited now! :)


I'm still going to miss Groff so much, but it's good to know that someone really good is going to replacing him!
I don't need a life that's normal. That's way too far away. But something next to normal would be okay. Something next to normal is what I'd like to try. Close enough to normal to get by.

yeah, Groff just looks SO innocent all the time. He has that wide eyed "young boy" look about him. But that's not to say Kyle couldn't either- it's just in his picture he's got more of a "cool scruffy rocker" vibe about him hehe. That's not bad either, it's just different. In fact, it might be a very cool interpretation of the role! Melchior is kind of supposed to be the "rockstar" of the show anyway, so.. :)

^haha well that's true, Moritz has the rock songs in the show. He definitely rocks out the hardest :) But in terms of characters in the context of the story, it's Melchior whose kind of the "rockstar" one that all the girls fawn over

but yeah, musically Moritz has the rock songs

I just meant in terms of characterization :)

hehe yeah, seeing as I'm already fawning, I don't forsee much of a problem there re: Next Melchior in Spring Awakening is...

LOL. very cute re: Next Melchior in Spring Awakening is...




oh man. If I'm already crushing on him this bad, I can only imagine how intense it is going to be if I actually see him in the show! lol. And the awesome thing is if he's 20 that is like.. only a little over a year older than me! Not that it really matters obvs, but just.. I always feel kind of wierd crushing on guys who are way older than me. So it's nice to be able to do it with guys who are about my age re: Next Melchior in Spring Awakening is...

That is one beautiful man. He kind of looks like Gavin Creel, which excites me to no end.

I'm super excited for this new cast. Alex Socha is my life, I think she's WONDERFUL!

um... so everyone should go and buy his CD Before I Speak on itunes. It's SO GOOD. He has a very Tyler Hilton sound. And he was freaking SIXTEEN when he made it. Boy's got amazing good looks AND freakish talent!

and he so DOES look a bit like Gavin Creel re: Next Melchior in Spring Awakening is...

Oh wow..this will get me back to see the show again. I've had Kyle's cd for ages and have seen him in concert a few times. Once was way back when he was about 15 opening for Maroon5.
I'll definitely have to check him out in the show.

Had no idea he was playing with Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers now. They are a great band.

When is he starting? I'm sorry if this was already asked, but I didn't see it. I am going to see SA in September and was REALLY hoping to see Jonathon Groff.
It really said US Navy, but hey, I worked with what they gave me ok.

Or later, depending upon if he is ready...Jesse could fill in until he is up & running in the role.

seeeriously, he is so cute!!!

It's making me feel significantly more alright about Groff leaving. I still don't want him to, but.. I DO really want to see Kyle!Melchior now hehe

Kyle is only taking the role for the summer until Hunter Parrish takes over. Jesse is probably going to do the part the first week (or so) after Groff leaves.

Kyle is suppose to then take the tour.

Of course, knowing SA....changes are always possible.

If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

He is adorable, but I am so, so, so worried about the dynamics and connections between the cast just deteriorating... J. Gallagher leaving was tough enough, but I am afraid that having to have a new Wendla and Melchior not only EXTREMELY connect with each other, but have to connect with the rest of the cast in a fairly short amount of time is really going to be straining and tricky.
