First of all, I have to state that I did NOT see the original; so I cannot compare the 2 shows. Secondly, what this show is, is art, pure and simple. Almost half the cast is deaf, but the other half makes up for it through signing and singing. This is a musical for the deaf and it justly deserved. If this does not win the Best Revival Tony next year, then there is no beauty left in the theatre community. The show is mesmerising, enchanting, and delightful. 25 people making their Broadway debut, no doubt more than one 'Jonathan Groff' among them.
5 out of 5. Amazing job.
