The 28-year-old model and deaf activist is producing Broadway’s revival of Children of a Lesser God.
Nyle DiMarco – winner of America’s Next Top Model – has been confirmed to join Broadway as a producer for the highly-anticipated revival of Children of a Lesser God.
The play takes place within a deaf school, and tells the story of a teacher named James Leeds (Joshua Jackson) and his developing romance with Sarah Norman (Lauren Ridloff), a young deaf woman.
Children of a Lesser God was adapted into a 1986 film starring William Hurt and Marlee Matlin, a role which garnered the American actress an Academy Award.
On DiMarco joining the team, producer Hal Luftig said: “We are so grateful to have Nyle as a producer on this play. He will have an integral role in the creative process and production of Children of a Lesser God, offering a fresh perspective in the room and valuable input in the process.”
DiMarco added: “I am so thrilled to join this talented group of producers on a project that is incredibly important and personal to me. The opportunity to be involved in the creative process of such a spectacular Broadway show is a challenge I am excited to conquer.”
Broadway’s revival of Children of a Lesser God will preview 22 March at Studio 54, with its opening night on 11 April.
The revival will also star Anthony Edwards as Mr Franklin, Kecia Lewis as Mrs Norman, Julee Cerda as Edna Klein, Treshelle Edmond as Lydia and Joan McGinty as Orin Dennis.
