One of the most indelible love stories of the modern age, Children of a Lesser God brings to life the passionate and personal connection between a teacher at a school for the deaf (Mr. Jackson) and the remarkable woman (Ms. Ridloff) he meets there. Now, Tony Award-winning director Kenny Leon's "outstanding production" (NPR) invigorates this landmark play with astounding new relevance and a pair of performances that cannot be missed. Jesse Green of The New York Times raves, "Joshua Jackson is a revelation in a tour de force role, and Lauren Ridloff is sensational and explosive."
Winner of the Tony, Drama Desk, and Olivier Awards for Best Play, Children of a Lesser God caused a sensation among audiences and critics alike when it premiered in 1980. Don't miss this exhilarating new production, back on Broadway for the first time.
