VIDEO: 'Dead' West Does SPRING AWAKENING and Zombies in New Spoof


This history-making Broadway revival of SPRING AWAKENING, performed simultaneously in American Sign Language and spoken English by a cast of 28, is breaking boundaries yet again. But this time, their new cast members could have stumbled straight out of THE WALKING DEAD. Below, watch a new spoof (written and directed by Alex Wyse) about how a fatal autocorrect error led to 'Dead' West's undead SPRING AWAKENING!

The video features members of the Broadway cast of SPRING AWAKENING, including: Miles Barbee, Katie Boeck, Alex Boniello, Joshua Castille, Treshelle Edmond, Sandra Mae Frank, Kathryn Gallagher, Sean Grandillo, Russell Harvard, Amelia Hensley, Lauren Luiz, Camryn Manheim, Marlee Matlin, Austin P. McKenzie, Andy Mientus, Patrick Page, Eric Powers, Krysta Rodriguez, Daniel David Stewart, Ali Stroker, Alexandra Winter, and Alex Wyse.

Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik's SPRING AWAKENING, directed by Michael Arden and choreographed by Spencer Liff, plays at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre (256 West 47th Street). SPRING AWAKENING began previews on September 8 and opened on September 27; the limited engagement will end on Broadway January 24. The show recently announced plans for a national tour to begin in 2017.

Based on Frank Wedekind's controversial 1891 expressionist play of the same name and featuring an electrifying pop/rock score, SPRING AWAKENING follows the lives of a group of adolescents as they navigate their journey from adolescence to adulthood in a fusion of morality, sexuality and rock & roll. An extraordinary creative team including Michael Arden and Spencer Liff has reinvented the groundbreaking musical about lost innocence and the struggles of youth in true Deaf West style.
