Last Profile of the Month: Taylor Trensch

You guys voted, and Taylor Trensch, our lovable, tortured Moritz, will be the last profile of the month for this leg of the tour.
We plucked Taylor out of his tenure at Elon University in North Carolina (where he went with his 'mentor' Matt Shingledecker) after Taylor submitted a video audition. Almost every single review since he joined the tour has singled out his heartbreaking performance and this young star received the 'Best Supporting Actor in a Musical' Ovation Award given by the Denver Post after our stint at the Denver Theatre Center. Leave your questions for Taylor as a comment below. If you don't have an accepted sign in, you can leave your post as 'anonymous,' but make sure you include your name in your post! Questions can be submitted until Friday, April 16th.

What was is like coming into the tour knowing that you were replacing Blake, who had embodied the character of Moritz for so long? Were you nervous at how people would accept or not accept your portrayal of Moritz?

Anonymous said...


What was your audition process like? What song did you sing/ What happened when you got the call back/ Advice for other aspiring actors who are video auditioning for the show?

Keep being brilliant,


Maddy said...

Taylor! You truly are 'remarkable!'

Looking back on every role you've ever played, which one was your:
1. Favorite
2. Hardest
3. Easiest

Anonymous said...


I have three questions!

What was it like attending Elon, and did you ever feel like you had a "leg up" knowing and working with ShiShi? You are absolutely adorable, and your performance as Moritz melted my heart. What's one of the most memorable things a fan has said to or done for you?


Maddy said...

Taylor, you're amazing. Such a rock star!

What's been your most favorite and most cringe-worthy memory so far on the tour?

Elaine from California said...

Taylor, you're so amazing! Love you!

If you could choose a role to play in ANYTHING, past or present, what would it be and why?

Erica said...


How did you feel when you found out you were playing the role of Moritz? You are absolutely my favorite actor ever!!!!!

Jules said...

You are amazing!!

What are you going to miss most about the tour? What are you looking forward to doing now that the tour is over.....as in, what other gigs do you have set up?

Moritz is my favorite character in the show and you are by far, my favorite Moritz I have ever seen. I've seen 3 others and you really stand out. :)

Anonymous said...

Hey Taylor, you're SO awesome as Moritz!
My question for you has 2 parts:
1. When you found out you got the role of Moritz, how many times had you seen the show?
2. Have the other Moritz's (John, Blake, Gerard etc) influenced how you played the role? Or did you want to completely re-imagine it for yourself?
Sarah from Wisconsin

Meg said...

Taylor! Let me start by saying that even though I didn't see you in Spring Awakening as Moritz, I love seeing you in the TotallyTrucked videos.

You're obviously following in some pretty big footsteps in the role of Moritz (John Gallagher, Jr., Blake Bashoff, Gerard Canonico). 1) Do you think people who have seen the aforementioned actors compare you too much to them, or see you as a totally new Moritz? 2. It is known by followers of the TotallyTRUCKED! blog that you are gay. Have you used any of the struggles you may have encountered there in your portrayal of Moritz?

Have a great rest of the tour & future career!

Anonymous said...

you're amazing!

if you could be any breakfast cereal, what would you be and why? :)

and what is your dream role in any show?

Rozzie said...

Hi Taylor! Okay, so first I want to commend you on your great memory! (When I sat onstage in San Jose, you remembered me at the stage door, and then in SAcramento, you remembered me from San Jose!) Alright, I have like a billion questions for you-

1. If you could marry any fictional character, who would you marry, and why?
2. Are there any musicals that you think everyone (regardless of age, gender, race, etc.) should see?
3. Pretend today is your birthday. What 5 celebrities (or Broadway performers) would make you feel happiest if they wished you a happy birthday?
4. What has been your favorite stop on tour? Why?
5. If you could go anywhere in the world for ONE day, with an unlimited budget, where would you go, and what would you do there?
6. Favorite Broadway performer/show/song/cast album?
7. What are the 25 most played songs on your ipod or itunes?
8. Cast the musical version of your favorite TV show or movie, and cast the movie or TV show version of your favorite musical.
9. Favorite Disney movie(s)/character(s)/song(s)?
10. Do you have any dream roles? If so, what are they?
11. Where do you wish you could go or could have gone on tour? What would you have done there?
12. You were on FIRE both times I saw you in the show. How do you maintain that SICK amount of energy every performance?
13. Are you planning for auditioning for anything after the tour?
Last one-
14. You have AWESOME style. Where are you favorite places to shop?

Of course you don't have to use all of those, but I'd be greatly appreciative if you used one! :)

Have an AMAZING time on the rest of the tour! Hope to see you in something again soon! :)

Joanna said...

First of all, I saw you in Hartford and you were incredible!

1. What is your favorite memory of this tour, and what is one thing you will take away from it?

2. Did you ever have a moment where you realized theater was what you wanted to do with your life?

3. Do you have a dream role?

4. What is your favorite moment in the show?

5. What song do you think describes your life?

6. If you could be friends with anyone, dead or alive, who would you choose to befriend?

That's all I have, break a leg for the rest of the tour! =]

Claire said...

How long have you been a fan of musicals?

Maddy said...

Taylor, you certainly are QUITE the performer. Keep up the amazing work!

Who/what was your inspiration to start doing what you're doing?

Edward said...

Hi Taylor! I have seen the show twice (both times with you) and I am profoundly deaf. I read Spring Awakening before I came to see it and your character of Moritz really stuck out to me and I felt I could relate to you completely.

My question is, how do you prepare yourself to play such an emotional role every single night? Do you do anything special before you go on stage to get into the mindset of Moritz?

Bradey said...

Hi Taylor!
You're awesome and I love you.
It was fun sitting by you onstage and dallas.
You play such a different moritz than any others I've seen. Your Moritz really connects to me. I wanted to run onstage and give you a hug. (I was able to restrain myself)
Now for the question!
A lot of us look up to and idolize you and the other SA people. What people do you idolize and look up to?
Who would you want to meet if you could meet anyone in the world?
P.S. You're great.

Anna said...

TAYLOR you are amazing and my favorite actor in the whole world.

What are you planning on doing after the tour?

Victoria said...

Hey Taylor,
you're a brilliant Moritz. I've seen you 3 out of my 4 times and I've loved your portrayal every time.

if you had one last meal on earth, what would be featured in it and why?

much love, Victoria from Ohio

Jordan from Kentucky (That's Northern Kentucky, Not "Keentucky" Kentucky) said...

Right away, I wanna say that you are amazing. By far my favorite Moritz. I am also proud to hear that you are gay because you inspire me (A gay man) so much. I really hope to see more of you in the future.

But my question is, What is one of your proudest moments in the theatre world that you have accomplished? Is there anything you hope to accomplish in the future?

First, you are amazing and Spring Awakening is one of the most amazing shows I have ever seen.
My question is:

Hello loved you in the show
so my friend and i saw you in SA at the orange county performing art center in Costa Mesa, CA and we went onthe day they had a talk back after the show and we could not help but notice the way you moved and sat reminded us all of our high school theater days so my question is how long have you been involved in theater and what got you in to it?-mariah carrillo

Hey, Taylor!
You were great when I saw you last month. I enjoyed your rocking out during DDS. Having seen Johnny, Blake, and Gerard, you might have rocked that mic stand the most. :D
Two random things:
1) I'm originally from Florida, too. Do you miss Publix as much as I do? :(
2) You have an awesome sense of fashion/style. Looking in your wardrobe, what would be your favorite outfit/pieces of clothing?

Hi Taylor! I saw you multiple times in Cincinnati and fell absolutely in love with you. Beyond playing an awesome Moritz in SA, what do you enjoy to do in your spare time? Any summer plans?

Scotty K said...

Hi Taylor! I saw you in Hershey, we had the same sweatshirt going on thing. Well anyway Moritz is such an awesome character and you really portrayed the dude amazingly. But is it intimidating to play a role that has been originated already? Do you feel you have to make it the same as Johnny Gallagher or Blake Bashoff, or did you try to make it your own thing?

Scotty K said...

Wait!!!Hi again. I want to change my question kind of if I can because other people had the same question as me, but here it is. What do you think of the new musical American Idiot which features several Spring Awakening original cast members. What do you think about it's idea of being innovative?

Elaine from California said...

Taylor, you can SERIOUSLY rock! Do you have any aspirations to ever start a rock band or something similar? You'd be so successful!

Madelyn said...

Hi Taylor! You're so, so talented! You have a such a long, successful career ahead of you! Can't wait to see more.

How does it feel to know that there are tons and tons of girls (on the internet and, I'm sure, in person) going crazy about you because you are so flippin CUTE and TALENTED and just overall great? We love you.


Rochelle fr Berkeley said...

Hey, Taylor. In comparison to past actors who've taken on your role, you seem to portray Moritz somewhat differently--less conspicuously frazzled and spastic but still deeply distraught and tender/vulnerable at the core. (I love all the various Moritzs I've seen performed, just to clarify ;]) How did you feel taking up such a beloved role? Is your portrayal of Moritz influenced at all by your predecessors? How've you made the role your own?

Anonymous said...

Hey, Taylor.
My question comes in two parts:
1. If you could be friends with any character from Spring Awakening in real life, who would it be and why?
2. Who from the cast most embodies this character?
Thank you! :)
Marissa from Australia

Anonymous said...

TAYLOR! Woo, okay so when I first saw Spring Awakening a couple months ago I couldn't help but think, "Rock star!" throughout the entire show when ever you began to sing. And with that, my question is, would you or have you ever considered becoming a rock star in some hip band, doing real concerts instead of making people feel like they're at an explosive rock concert?

Maria said...

Hullo there, Mr. T.
This has been bugging me for months.
Way back when, you had a Twitter and you put a twitpic of your Moritz shoes with the caption that said something like "From Broadway." Did that mean that they were used in the Broadway production? If so, whose shoes were they?
Thanks! I hope that lots of your family & friends get to see you for the final show in FL.

Taylor, first off let me say you are aboslutely and utterly amazing.

Now, for the question.

Maddie from California said...

Hi Taylor!

If you could "live" in any movie, what would it be and why?

Michael, from Dallas, TX said...

Dearest Taylor,

You are fab fab fabulous! Met you in Dallas three times, and each time, you were absolutely gracious, professional, and very sweet, and adorable. Okay, now for the question.

I don't mean to get to personal, but you have talked about being openly gay in past interviews. As a fellow gay actor, I was curious...did your growing up and dealing with your sexuality have any influence on how you portrayed Moritz?

I know Moritz isn't gay, but I mean, were you able to use your own personal experiences as an inspiration, or even just a stepping stone, as to how hard Moritz struggles with his own puberty? And if so, are there any specific instances in your life (that you'd be willing to talk about, that is), that you can cite that helped with certain scenes/aspects of the character?


A true fan and admirer.

(PS--On a personal note, I've seen JGJ and BB as Moritz, and while they were each amazing in their own way, you achieved what I thought was unthinkable, in that you made me forget there was ever a previous Moritz. Truly, you are magnificent beyond your years. Keep up the good work. :) )


Michael, from Dallas, TX said...

Me Again. I have to ask this, because I am, at heart, a writer, and ever since I saw you perform and met you, I'm wracking my brain to find something to write just for you. Is there any type of role you'd like to play that hasn't been written yet? Would it be a play or a musical? I've already got a couple ideas but I wanted to know what YOU really wanted to do.

Also...it's been said somewhere you're going back to College after the tour is over. How do you think your outlook will be now that you've starred in such a national phenomenon, and what do you plan on doing after college? (Meaning, what kind of theatre/performing are you planning to do?)

Do you eventually want to do tv/movies? Or stick with theatre for a while?

Anonymous said...


I found your video on YouTube with (Missing You Like) Candy, and you're so adorable! How did that come about? And will there be any more parodies in the future? (also, stay away from that nose candy! Don't want you going down like Lindsay Lohan!)

Diego, from Austin, TX said...

Okay, so, first let me say how much I have loved Spring Awakening for three years. And I adored Blake Bashoff's moritz (being a fan of his for YEARS!)

BUT... when I saw your Moritz, I was struck by the thought that even though Blake and JGJ are both older than you, the way you portrayed Moritz was, first and foremost, your own performance, and I think, maybe more mature? Not sure if that's the right word.

Basically, what I'm trying to say is that Blake and JGJ's Moritzes were excellent in their own way, but I could always kind of see the road that Moritz was traveling down with their performance (not just because I knew the show, either), but with your performance, I honestly felt that I could see Moritz as tortured, and then somehow, bring himself up again, and then come crashing down all over again.

I was just wondering how you prepared for the role? It's not an easy role to play, but you honestly surprised me in that I could see your choices as clear as day, and that made it such a treasure, and an honor to watch.

Can't wait to see and hear more of you in the future.

--Peace, Love, Pride

PLEEEZEE!!! Come back to the dark side!! Join the Social Networking Society of America!!

Anonymous said...


You're fantabulously amazing.

Okay, so...as an openly gay actor yourself, do you have any advice for other gay actors? I read somewhere that Rupert Everett cautioned gay actors not to come out until they'd made it, or until their sexuality didn't matter, but you were out before you even became such a huge deal (and you totally are, by the way).

Do you have any advice for just regular gay teens/youth?

I'm very proud of the fact that not only are you openly gay, but that you don't shy away from it. It IS an important part of your life, and I'm so happy to see that you realize that.

Also, do you see yourself as a role model? Would you like to be a role model? If not, does it bother you that people might see you as a role model?

And finally, do you mind playing gay characters? Or if people (meaning hollywood producers, casting agents, etc.) remember you just for playing a gay role? Have you played a gay role?

I've always felt that visibility is key, and every person that comes out, no matter their profession, is one more crack in the wall of prejudice. How do you feel about that thought?

Keep up the awesomeness!

Hey Taylor,
Moritz is pretty much my dream role and I was wondering. how hard is it to play such a sad, tortured character every night and discover that depression every day? What places do you go to in yourself to play that, assuming you're not actually suicidal.

Shen said...

Hey Taylor! First off, you are an amazing actor!
Secondly, I'd like to ask you a question :)
Where do you find your inspiration to play such an intense and tortured character like Moritz? I've played very sad roles like this before and it's tough! How do you do it?
p.s. by any chance do you know how matt shingledecker got the nickname shishigabor? it baffles me! :O

I was wondering if you have ever had any moments in the show go terribly wrong. I know that you've made minor mistakes before, such as when I went in Detroit you dropped the essay in the scene before touch me, but has anything terrible ever gone wrong? I wish you all the best!

Anonymous said...

Hey Taylor,
I saw you in Detroit three times in one week (I couldn't help myself and kept coming back), and you were absolutely FANTASTIC.
Anyway, when I met you, you seemed like a happy, content (and very adorable) person. Moritz is a very intense, tortured character. Is is difficult for you to find that character inside yourself everyday, because it seems so much different form your actual personality.
Love you!

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How can I send fan mail to the cast?

If you just want to send a quick note to all the cast members telling them you appreciate their work, you can email us here at totallytruckedblog (at) gmail (dot) com. I will be happy to forward your email to the cast, but to preserve their privacy, it is unlikely they will email you back (I will, though).

You can also send individual performers fan mail and care packages care of the theatre at which we are currently performing or will be performing. Go to the theatre's website (listed above), find their mailing address, write the actor's name as well as "Spring Awakening" and send c/o the theatre. Remember, we are often at these theatres for only a week so make sure to allow for delivery times. It's a better bet to send it to the theatre we will be going to next as they can always hold packages for us until we arrive. Letters received late will not be forwarded to our next location.

2. How Can I Audition for Spring Awakening?
From time to time, we have open calls in larger cities across the US. We will post any additional open calls here. Subscribe if you havn't already to keep informed. In the meantime, we've made it easy for you to submit yourself singing a folk/alternative rock song on video. Go to: http://www.springawakening.com/videoauditionsubmission/ Make sure your submission is less than 500 MB and is one of the accepted formats. Your screen should change and you should get a confirmation that says your submission has been received. Trust us, people are called in this way. Lucas Wells was cast because of an online submission!

3. How Do I Score On Stage Seats?
That is really up to the individual theatres. Most of them won't release the seats until just before performances because they want to make sure the house is sold first. Some do so online, although the ticketing systems they have in place often can't accommodate our unique seats onstage. Most of them are available only at the box office (though you can purchase them for a performance in the future). The Guilty Ones Street Team members have the rights to purchase these seats before the general public. Any seats left over will be released to the box office and may also be purchased as part of rush tickets (discounted, day-of tickets).

4. How Do I Join The Guilty Ones?

The National Guilty Ones Street Team is a way for fans of the show in each of our tour stops to help us spread the word. You will get access to parties, meet and greets, and other special events while meeting new friends who share your passion for the show, all while gaining some valuable marketing experience. You must be at least 15 yrs old. Email your contact info to nationalguiltyones (at) gmail (dot) com.

5. Can I Get Discounts?

From time to time, a theatre may offer us discounts to send out to our fans. We will post any here on the blog. Subscribe now!

6. Who runs this site? This site was created for fans to stay connected with our touring cast and follow their adventures around North America. Ideally, it would be in the voice of the cast members. Unfortunately, our cast members are often too tired or busy to post lengthy blog posts on a regular basis. Company members will contribute a post from time to time and every month we will have a compiled blog post that most every company member will participate in. The other stuff like updates, etc, will be posted by me. My name is Pun. I work for the production, love this show, its cast, and our fans, and I'm so very glad you're here!

Co 231 W 39th Street Suite 1200 New York, N.Y. 10018.
