New York Times Review of Deaf West’s Revival of Spring Awakening on Broadway

Some say they have outdone original production

The book by Steven Sater is the the same. The music by Duncan Sheik is the same. The performance rocks as hard as the OCR recorded by Michael Tudor… But everything else packs a new punch…

“One of the great musicals of the last decade was born anew on Sunday, when the thrillingly inventive Deaf West Theater production of “Spring Awakening” opened on Broadway at the Brooks Atkinson Theater. Any qualms theater-lovers might have about this being a premature, whiplash-inducing revival — the original closed in 2009, after all — will vanish like frost in strong sunlight when the young cast of both hearing and deaf actors floods the stage.”
