Hot Clip of the Day: Spring Awakening Tour Sings Cut "A Comet On Its Way"
Each day, the Bbox team trolls YouTube for the hot clip—sometimes it's a brand-new moment and sometimes it's a throwback to an oldie but goodie. No matter what praise hands are shot up, pearls are clutched and the repeat button is hit.
"A Comet on Its Way" Cut from Spring Awakening (The First National Touring Company of Spring Awakening)
Ulterior Motives: "Spring and Summer, ev'ry other day." As summer is winding down, we thought this cut tune from Duncan Sheik's Spring Awakening seemed like an appropriate throwback. The song is said to have been replaced by "Bitch of Living" when the show moved to Off-Broadway and ultimately Broadway. The video is from over a decade ago and it is so fun to see Andy Mientus, Ben Ross, Matt Shingledecker and more during this special West Hollywood Broadway Cares benefit.
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Kyle Riabko, the tour's Melchior is completely shredding it on guitar - it's so great. The energy coming off of this stage is so fantastic it's electric. Our ultimate moment is at 3:02 - 3:24 without a doubt! The foot stomping starts, the energy hits a new level and Kyle gorgeously ties up the end of the song after the final chorus. You'll be hitting the play button again!
