Austin recently made his Broadway debut starring in the critically acclaimed Broadway revival of "Spring Awakening." The show, which was conceived and created by Deaf West Theatre, took the beloved contemporary classic and presented it in a beautifully choreographed/staged way that incorporated sign language into the show. Austin was one of only a few actors that sang, danced, acted, and used sign language in the show. Austin was awarded the 2016 Theatre World Award in recognition of his New York stage debut. Austin is extremely passionate about working with people with special needs and continues to spend his summers as a counselor at a camp in Arizona, where he has been volunteering for the past seven years.
