We have exclusive video of Jake singing a song from Spring Awakening with our cast members while they were in Toronto. As many of you know, Jake was in the Toronto cast of "Dog Sees God" which our cast members saw early in their Toronto run. They decided to do a cabaret together. Here is Jake with fellow Dog Sees God members Alex Saslove and Paula Brancati (also from Degrassi) with our cast members Krystina Alabado, Sarah Hunt, Julie Benko. Anthony Lee Medina and Matt Shingledecker sing back up vocals! Enjoy this exclusive rendition of "The Dark I Know So Well:"
