We throw it back to Deaf West Theatre's Broadway production trailer of Spring Awakening!
This Thursday we are throwing it back to the trailer for Deaf West Theatre's acclaimed production of Spring Awakening, which ran on Broadway September 27, 2015, to January 24, 2016. See the video above.
The history-making production at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre features a cast of 28 deaf, hard-of-hearing, and hearing actors and musicians performing simultaneously in American Sign Language and spoken English.
The Tony-winning musical by Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik is a soulful coming-of-age story set in 19th-century Germany (based on the 1891 play of the same title by Frank Wedekind) that sent shockwaves through Broadway in its original 2006 production.
