Lead producer Hal Luftig has taken steps to ensure that the production will be accessible to all audiences. Supertitles of Medoff’s dialogue will be seamlessly incorporated into Derek McLane’s scenic design for each performance; closed captioning will also be available through the GalaPro app on Apple and Android devises. Audience members must first download the GalaPro app and then download the Children of a Lesser God app upon arriving at Studio 54. Visit galaprompter.com/#galapro-app.
Luftig is joined on the producing team by Tamar Climan, Craig Haffner, and Sandy Block. Model, actor, and Deaf activist Nyle DiMarco is making his Broadway debut as a co-producer on the production.
