Digital Broadway creators Michael Korte and Bryson Camper have shared their newly reimagined take on "Flesh Failures (Let the Sun Shine In)" from the 1968 Broadway musical Hair. Korte and Camper are also the creators behind the Hamilton/Beyoncé mashup #HAM4BEY and Elphaba in the Bathroom.
The music video stars stage alums George Salazar (Be More Chill, Godspell), Julia K. Harriman (Hamilton national tours), and Simone Joy Jones (The Miracle Worker) as well as singers Malaya, J Rome, and Naärai.
Korte directed the video, which features music production and vocal arrangements by Camper. The creative team also includes director of photography Taylor Russ, editor Mario Andrew Fierro, wardrobe supervisor Coco Laquay, recording engineer Vinny J Edwards, and production designer Joni Estrella. Camper also served as mixing engineer.
Hair, which features music by Galt MacDermot and a book and lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rando, examines a group of '60s-era youth struggling with generational and personal identity as they explore drugs and the sexual revolution and deal with the Vietnam War.
