Not only did Groff and Michele play the principal couple of Melchoir and Wendla in the show, they went on to become the biggest stars to emerge from it. They even reunited for ''Glee'' at one point. And their following has grown exponentially. As a ''marketing tool,'' Groff and Michele, who are open and outspoken in sharing their memories, have been the face of this documentary, and they've done various media interviews to plug it.

More to the point, the film focuses on Groff and Michele as a symbol of all the young actors in the cast, and how they grew and found themselves emotionally and sexually. (Playing the bold Melchoir, Groff says, helped him come out of the closet.) Being so young, they all bonded onstage AND offstage. The film features them playing at Groff's family farm in Pennsylvania and recalling the time they held a secret sleepover at the O'Neill.

I loved how it captured their incredible camaraderie, and it was moving to see them reunite and sing these songs again. Yet as Michael Mayer says: ''This reunion wasn't about 'Spring Awakening'; it was an opportunity to be with these kids and see who they've become.''
