Studio 54 (Broadway)
254 West 54th St. New York, NY

Experience the emotional fireworks that New York Magazine calls "intense, primal, and show-stopping." CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD has arrived on Broadway in a breathtaking new production starring Joshua Jackson ("The Affair," "Fringe"), Lauren Ridloff (Wonderstruck), and Anthony Edwards ("ER"). This Tony-winning Best Play tells the story of an unconventional teacher at a school for the deaf and the remarkable woman he meets there.

Jesse Green of The New York Times raves, it's "fierce, crackling, passionate and profound. Lauren Ridloff gives a blistering, knockout debut performance. And I am awestruck by Joshua Jackson." "He is truly astonishing" cheers the Daily Beast. And Variety declares, "Lauren Ridloff comes out of nowhere and knocks us off our feet."

CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD. "It’s easy to understand why it means so very much to so many people" (Chicago Tribune). On Broadway at Studio 54.

FEATURED REVIEWS FOR Children of a Lesser God

Review: 'Children of a Lesser God' on Broadway: This is a powerful play, but the teacher falling for his deaf student has become problematic
7 / 10

But that doesn't mean "Children of a Lesser God" is an easy work to embrace in the current context. At least not without more revisions, or refocusing, than appears to have taken place before this first-ever Broadway revival.

BWW Review: Echoes of G.B. Shaw in Mark Medoff's CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD
7 / 10

With attitudes, and the language we use to express them, drastically changing in the nearly four decades since Children of a Lesser God first hit New York, the play's criticism of well-intentioned coddling of those of diverse abilities is now pretty much preaching to the choir. The play might be best viewed today as a period piece that helped popularize a way of thinking that is now much more widely accepted.
