"What's that, been to Egypt and never seen the pyramids?"

Phenomenal. I want to say that first. This play was absolutely phenomenal.

I've seen four plays here at Conn College this past year. Two of them were poorly written, and the third poorly performed. Needless to say, I wasn't looking for much from this show except a great set (the sets here are always fantastic). So I go to "Spring Awakening" expecting much of the same kind of thing. I'm going out of obligation more than interest.

I never enjoyed being proved wrong more. It was well written (originally in German, but the translation played pretty damn well), well acted, well thought, and very daring. Hands down the best play I've seen here. I'm wowed and amazed.

On other matters: The test went all right except for the 30% essay question at the end, the tea ceremony was lovely, and I did manage to eat in the middle (JA dining hall had really good rice today!) Now, to pick my room for next year and write two papers...won't that be fun! And off I go...
