Deaf West's Spring Awakening
Brooks Atkinson Theatre, 256 West 47th Street, New York, NY
Based on Frank Wedekind’s controversial 1891 expressionist play and featuring an electrifying score, Spring Awakening follows the lives of a group of teenagers as they navigate their journey from adolescence to adulthood in a fusion of morality, sexuality and rock & roll. Deaf West Theatre’s innovative new production of the 8-time, Tony Award-winning Best Musical - performed simultaneously in American Sign Language and spoken English by a cast of 27 - was heralded as an “emotional triumph” by the Los Angeles Times and enjoyed a sold-out engagement at downtown L.A.'s Rosenthal Theatre in the fall of 2014.
