Behind the Scenes of Children of a Lesser God's First Producer Meeting with Nyle DiMarco
The Broadway revival of Children of a Lesser God doesn’t officially open until the spring, but the cast and crew are already hard at work.
Stars Joshua Jackson and Lauren Ridloff joined producer Nyle DiMarco this week for a producer’s meeting with lead producer Hal Luftig, executive producer Tamar Climan, producer Craig Haffner and associate producer Sandy Block.
Ridloff is starring as Sarah (originated by Phyllis Frelich, who won the Tony Award for best actress in Mark Medoff’s Tony-winning play), a young deaf woman working as a janitor at a school for the deaf and hard of hearing.
Jackson stars opposite Ridloff as James, a teacher who arrives at the school and eventually develops a romantic relationship with Sarah.

Performances directed by Tony Award-winner Kenny Leon begin on March 22 ahead of opening night on April 11 at Broadway’s Studio 54.
