Deaf West Theatre’s Spring Awakening Cast Performs on Good Day LA

The cast of Deaf West Theatre’s Spring Awakening perform “The Word of Your Body” on Fox 11 Good Day LA morning show on June 11, 2015, followed by a brief interview with director Michael Arden. Austin McKenzie is Melchior, Sandra Mae Frank is Wendla, and Katie Boeck is Wendla’s voice. Half of the cast in this show are deaf and have counterpart musicians who sing for them/act as their alter-egos. The entire show is performed simultaneously in spoken English and American Sign Language, with ASL incorporated into the choreography (by Spencer Liff), and the results are stunning as you can see. This show is pure magic and the rest of the world needs to see it..! I just wish the cameraman focused a little more in this video! Rest of the cast featured in this clip: Krysta Rodriguez, Alex Boniello, Daniel Durant, Daniel David Stewart, Sean Barna, Miles Barbee, Lauren Luiz, Ali Stroker, Amelia Hensley, Treshelle Edmond, Sean Grandillo, Josh Castille, Alex Wyse, Kathryn Gallagher.
