Mama Who Bore Me… and Lied to Me

7 Sep

This October, Ball State’s theater department is bringing Spring Awakening to University  Theater.

This Tony Award- Winning musical emphasizes the educational gap between men and women in late 1800s Germany. The story follows Wendla, played by Lea Michele, who asks her mother the age old question: where do babies come from? Her mother lies to her, merely because she is a young woman, and that lie drives the rest of the story.

Watch from approx. :25 to 6:15, and I encourage you to continue watching. It is a beautiful show.
This scene, specifically, shows Wendla asking her mother and how her mother blatantly treats her daughter like a fool.
The show should be terrific, and tickets are now on sale!

    Throughout history, it seems to be a common theme that we would rather lie to those asking such controversial questions than to have open dialogue over certain “taboo” topics. Great video!
