Award Winning 99 Seat Show now en route to White House

spring awakening footlights white houseBroadway World: It’s been an extraordinary journey for Deaf West Theatre’s production of Spring Awakening.  First produced in a 99 seat theater, it was then remounted in the larger Wallis Annenberg Center for Performing Arts in Beverly Hills.  From there, the production next moved to the Brooks Atkinson Theater on Broadway where it became a New York Times’ Critic’s Pick.  Along the way, both  Los Angeles productions won the LA Stage Alliance’s prestigious Ovation Awards.  The latest news is that the production will be part of the White House program on Americans with Disabilities and the Arts, a celebration of diversity and inclusion.

Watch the video of the performance here.

Congratulations to the entire cast and crew of this production.  This journey would never have happened without the benefits provided by the recently revoked Actors’ Equity 99-seat plan.
