Model, actor, and activist Nyle DiMarco has joined the creative team of the upcoming Broadway revival of Mark Medoff’s Children of a Lesser God as a producer. Winner of the Tony, Drama Desk, and Olivier Awards for Best Play, the play tells the story of an unconventional teacher at a school for the deaf and the remarkable woman he meets there.

Children of a Lesser God will begin previews on Broadway March 22 ahead of an official opening at Studio 54. Tony Award-winning director Kenny Leon (A Raisin in the Sun, Fences) directs a cast led by Joshua Jackson (The Affair), Ridloff (Wonderstruck), and Anthony Edwards (ER).
“I am so thrilled to join this talented group of producers on a project that is incredibly important and personal to me,” said DiMarco, who is deaf, in an earlier statement. “The opportunity to be involved in the creative process of a such a spectacular Broadway show is a challenge I am excited to conquer.”
