This is reiterated in the musical throughout the song The Bitch of Living- while the rest of the boys express a lack of understanding about their sexual and worldly frustrations (and the general angst of going through puberty), Melchior answers their pleas.
Melchior realizes that not everything that the boys were taught in school was completely accurate and that society had missed certain subjects out.
But the scene, in all its graphicness—stark realness, actually—means much more than that.“These sex scenes are an opportunity to illuminate something in a character but also in life for people,” he says.
“Like this is what actually goes down.”He likes to tell the story about how many of his straight friends didn’t realize that gay men can have sex facing each other until they watched his character do it in a scene in Looking.“I think [Looking creator] Andrew Haigh does a really good job capturing the reality of sex instead of just the salaciousness of sex,” he says.
Moritz requests a more thorough explanation, which Melchior provides in the form of a ten-page essay entitled "The Art of Sleeping With," complete with detailed illustrations of male and female genitalia. In the play, he is uninterested in how the girl is feeling, but in the musical he is fascinated by it, actively putting himself in that place for the essay.
The essay is used as evidence to get Melchior expelled after Moritz commits suicide, as the essay is seen as proof of not only Melchior's corruptions, but Melchior's 'motivation' to corrupt his peers.
Melchior is often described as a radical throughout both the play and the musical.
His teachers sometimes find him disruptive and aggravating, as he often protests against their lessons, however, they also want to exploit his potential leading them to often blame Mortiz for Melchior's short comings.
Melchior comes from a loving home, despite hints being placed in the play that he does not have a close relationship with his father.
However, Melchior does have a very close relationship with his Mother (Fanny Gabor), who strived to raise him in a liberal-minded and forward-thinking home.
Jonathan Groff played Melchior in the Original Broadway Cast. Mc Kenzie in the 2015 Deaf West Broadway revival Melchior Gabor is a schoolboy living in Germany in 1891.
Melchior is frustrated because he understands that the society in which he lives is hiding information from its youth.
