'Children of a Lesser God' heads to Broadway

The story "Children of a Lesser God," which has been a hit already on stage and in film, is heading back to Broadway.
Producer Hal Luftig said Monday that a revival is in the works for the 2015-2016 Broadway season. Tony Award-winner Kenny Leon will direct. No cast was announced.
"Children of a Lesser God," by Mark Medoff, follows the relationship between a deaf woman and a teacher at a school for the deaf.
Phyllis Frelich won a Tony in 1980 for her Broadway portrayal of Sarah Norman, the deaf woman at the heart of the play.  "Children of a Lesser God" was later made into a movie, which won an Academy Award for deaf actress Marlee Matlin.
