R&H Goes Pop has released a new video featuring Derek Klena singing "Younger Than Springtime" from South Pacific. Listen to the acoustic take in the music video, featuring a cameo by Laura Osnes (and Shake Shack), above. The series features Broadway stars taking on new and pop-infused covers of classic Rodgers and Hammerstein show tunes.
Previous offerings have included Jelani Alladin and Matt Doyle on a same-sex version of “We Kiss in a Shadow” from The King and I (watch here), Laura Osnes and Jeremy Jordan performing a mashup of Cinderella's "Ten Minutes Ago" and The Last Five Years' "The Next Ten Minutes” (watch here), and Jordan's solo cover of "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'" from Oklahoma! (watch here).
Klena, who originated the role of Dmitry in Anastasia, most recently appeared in the Boston world premiere of Jagged Little Pill, which is set to transfer to Broadway in the fall. He's also appeared on Broadway in Wicked and The Bridges of Madison County.
