Ticket Givewaway: Win two tickets to see Spring Awakening for free. I love this show; it’s joyful and beautiful, with an exciting and appealing cast, 17 of whom are making their Broadway debuts.
I’m not alone: the New York Times calls it “thrillingly inventive….a first-rate production of a transporting musical,” the AP says it’s “exhilarating.”
This rock musical about teenagers discovering the tumult of sexuality is presented by Deaf West, performed in both American Sign Language and spoken English.
“Signing has been integrated here so deftly that you feel the language’s fluidity has a natural place in musical theater.” – The Washington Post.
Update: The winner of the drawing is Migdalia Pizarro
