Together we discussed bad break ups, help some audience member settle their love trouble and even reached into the depths craigslist to help some Frederick locals find love, whether or not they came to the show.

Deaf Awakening goes to Broadway with Joshua Castille

On this very special episode of The Last Hurrah, we sat down with delightful Joshua Castille who is currently making the leap from Deaf West’s production of Spring Awakening to Broadway! We learned about his origin story of discovering theatre via a shower curtain and how he and Christine McQuaid became fast friends. We discuss what goes into making a production of Spring Awakening that’s accessible to both the hearing and the deaf and just how tight the show’s ensemble must be to pull it off.
