ASL-Interpreted Broadway and Off-Broadway performances Fall 2022. Watch Encanto in ASL

In the music video below, Deaf West Theater interprets Lin-Manuel Miranda’s song “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” into American Sign Language in a music video from the animated film “Encanto,” created as part of today’s celebration of the International Day of Sign Languages, proclaimed every September 23 by the UN General Assembly.

It’s a good day to present a schedule for ASL-interpreted performances on Broadway and Off-Broadway in the Fall 2022 season.

American Sign Language is one of just 300 different sign languages spoken by more than 70 million deaf people worldwide, according to the World Federation of the Deaf, which was founded in 1951 on September 23rd (hence the date of the annual International Day of Sign Lanugages.)
