CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD

A LOVE STORY. BEYOND WORDS.
Sometimes, a fleeting glance or a subtle touch can speak volumes. This spring, CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD returns to Broadway in a brand new production that proves once more that love has a language all its own.
In an age where texts and tweets make it seem like the whole world is talking at once, this timeless play about the art of communication explores what it's really like to not be heard or understood.
The winner of the 1980 Tony Award® for Best Play and later an Academy Award®-winning film, CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD now returns to Broadway for the first time ever.
Directed by Tony Award® winner Kenny Leon (A Raisin in the Sun), this new production stars Joshua Jackson (“Dawson's Creek,” Showtime's “The Affair”) and Lauren Ridloff.
Joshua Jackson is a revelation in the tour de force role of James, ably blending the character's smugness with real charm. Lauren Ridloff is a sensational find, her signing so explosive we barely need the translations.”
—Jesse Green, The New York Times
“A COMPELLING AND INCANDESCENT LOVE STORY!”
—The Berkshire Eagle
What makes this play so special—in addition to a compelling and brilliantly crafted story—is the skilled direction of Tony Award®-winning Kenny Leon. He ensures that the audience responds to every emotion—from laughter to humiliation to love—whether spoken by hand or voice.”
