This Musical Isn't Just for Deaf People — It's for Everyone

Deaf West Theater's adaptation of Tony Award-winning musical Spring Awakening is getting some buzz. Director Michael Arden wrote in his note to audiences, "To me, the play speaks to those who are denied a voice, to those who don't fit into the norm, to those who are questioning and experiencing the pains of growing up." In a promotional video about the production Arden says, "What better metaphor than deaf and hearing cultures?" has a full story here. Below is a preview of the show.
