“The Song of Purple Summer”, the last song of the show, always felt more like a coda than a conclusion to me. But what does it mean? Is it a flower that only blooms in summer? Or what if spring represents the green and innocent childhood, and the purple summer is an analogy for adulthood?

I could talk for hours and hours about why I think this as a play or a musical should be something that every teenager should watch, listen or read, because nowadays art can save lives.

The play that premiered as 'Spring awakening - A children's tragedy' (Spring awakening - A children's tragedy), was a blow to the society of the early nineteenth century, for openly dealing with issues such as abortion, rape, homosexuality, suicide or child abuse, all of this in the environment of young adolescents who awaken to sexuality, drowned by a hermetic environment that does not help them understand the changes and erotic fantasies that live in their body.

Porchlight’s SPRING AWAKENING brings out moments of the raw emotion and many of the angsty vibes in the musical with Hlava’s Wendla and Kelch’s Mortiz as powerful anchors in this ensemble of angsty teens (though, aside from Hlava, all the actors are past their teen days). While the production doesn’t solve the musical’s challenges of underbaked characters and heavy-handedness when it comes to the issues presented, Didier’s direction and choreography bring us some nice tableaus, along with Justin Akira Kono’s music direction that highlights the ensemble in key vocal moments.
