by Jay Irwin - Aug 30, 2015

If you're a company thinking of doing the rock musical of 'Spring Awakening' you need to be ready for it, not only as it's such a difficult show but since it was just done in the area a few years ago and to such acclaim. And while I applaud fledgling company Chandelier Production's courage in taking on such a tough show not to mention their model of using their proceeds to support local LGBTQ charities such as Peace from the Streets by Kids from the Streets, their current production shows that they are not mature enough of a company to handle this demanding show as there were so many issues vocally, theatrically and technically.

by Nicole Rosky - Aug 22, 2015

'Theatre for the deaf? On Broadway?' It's a question that many theatre fans have asked since July 7, when official word came that Deaf West Theatre's production of Spring Awakening would land on Broadway this fall. The upcoming production, which will run September 8 through January 9 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, will sound the same to fans of the 2006 Tony-winning musical, but it will be performed simultaneously in American Sign Language by a cast of 27. Wait...what?
