Spring Awakening officially opens September 27, 2015 at the Brooks Atkinsons Theatre in New York City. Academy Award winning actress Marlee Matlin and a cast of deaf and hearing actors will perform in the show, which tells the story of how teens navigate their emerging sexuality.
This will be the first of its kind on the Great White Way. “It took a long time to get to this place, that now we can see deaf actors on stage,” Marlee Matlin said. “To be able to see how ASL brings out even more in a performance than just what we’re accustomed to.”
