As the Broadway revival of Mark Medoff's Children of a Lesser God prepares for its April 11 opening at Studio 54, it has released new videos of its stars Lauren Ridloff and Joshua Jackson in action.
Directed by Tony Award winner Kenny Leon, Children of a Lesser God also features Anthony Edwards, Kecia Lewis, Julee Cerda, Treshelle Edmond, and John McGinty.
A revival of the 1980 Tony Award winner for Best Play, Children of Lesser God follows a teacher (Jackson) at a school for the deaf and the remarkable woman (Ridloff) he meets there. It is described as "one of the most indelible love stories of the modern age."
The creative team features Tony Award winner Derek McLane (set design), Dede Ayite (costume design), Tony Award nominee Mike Baldassari (lighting design), Jill B.C. Du Boff (sound design), two-time Grammy Award winner Branford Marsalis (original music), and Alexandria Wailes (director of artistic sign language).
