"Bottle a Jack" (Zoe Sarnak) - Grace McLean, Kacie Sheik and Whitney Winfield:
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
