7 Things We Learned About Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff in "Those You've Known"

On May 3, HBO aired "Those You've Known," a documentary about the original Broadway run of the musical "Spring Awakening" and the actors' reunion concert in the fall of 2021 to raise money for The Actor's Fund. The doc blends together footage from the original Broadway run, which began in 2006, with the performances at the concert. "Spring Awakening" is a coming-of-age rock musical that is set in Germany in the 1890s. In the doc, creator Steven Sater and composer Duncan Sheik talk about how the issues of the original play — which was published in 1891 — still spoke to young adults in the early 2000s. The show deals with sexual awakenings, abuse, homosexuality, abortion, and suicide, and how adult indifference causes suffering for teens.
