In 1980, Children of a Lesser God premiered on Broadway and asked: how can we truly communicate? Now, Tony Award®-winning director Kenny Leon is laying this question bare in a breathtaking new revival of this landmark play starring Joshua Jackson, Lauren Ridloff and Anthony Edwards. The New York Times calls it “thrilling! Joshua Jackson is a revelation in a tour de force role and Lauren Ridloff is sensational.”

Winner of the Tony, Drama Desk, and Olivier Awards for Best Play, Children of a Lesser God tells the story of an unconventional teacher at a school for the deaf and the remarkable woman he meets there. As their relationship heats up, so does their need for control, igniting a thrilling exploration of passion, intimacy, and connection.
