Spring Awakening’s Broadway Ensemble: Robert “Robi” Hager

Robi was a member of the original Broadway cast of Spring Awakening and understudied Melchior, Hanschen, Ernst, Otto, and Georg. He went on for every one except Melchior. After originally leaving the show in August of 2007, Robi came back to Spring Awakening twice– once briefly in the ensemble in summer of 2008, and then as Andy Mientus’ replacement as Hanschen to close out the first national tour.

After Spring Awakening, Robi also understudied roles in Bye Bye Birdie and How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying on Broadway.

Some videos of Robi singing songs from Spring Awakening:
“Left Behind”
“Mama Who Bore Me/Mama Who Bore Me (Reprise)”
“Touch Me” (solo, audio only)
“Touch Me” as Melchior

A few videos of Robi singing songs outside of Spring Awakening:
“Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol
“Glitter In the Air” by Pink
“A Lot of Livin’ To Do” from Bye Bye Birdie

I still feel sorry for Robi Hager, being one of the original understudies for Melchior on Broadway but never going on in the role (he did got on for Hanschen, Ernst, Georg, and Otto and later replaced Andy Mientus as Hanschen in the first national tour, though, so not so bad in the end.)

There’s video of Robi singing “Totally Fucked” and “Left Behind” and Melchior’s part in “Touch Me” in concert if you want to imagine what never was.
