'Spring Awakening' features deaf actress Marlee Matlin

- Award-winning actress Marlee Matlin is on the Broadway stage for the first time in 'Spring Awakening.'

"Even though they call it a revival it doesn't feel like a revival. It's more like a re-visioning of the show. We actually put deaf actors into some of the roles. There is rock music, sign language- an entirely different look at an old play," said Matlin.

Matlin's run in the show ends on January 10 at the Brooks Atkinson Theater on W. 47th St.
