Children of a Lesser God - 2018 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

$68-$336

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


BWW Review: Echoes of G.B. Shaw in Mark Medoff's CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD - BroadwayWorld
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.

‘Children of a Lesser God’ review: Joshua Jackson disappoints in underwhelming revival - amNY
The underwhelming revival (directed by Kenny Leon, the 2014 Broadway revival of "A Raisin in the Sun") does the play no favors with a slick, angular and metallic visual design that unnecessarily calls attention to itself. It also suffers from being played on the wide stage of Studio 54 instead of a more intimate venue.
