Deaf Broadway Signs Sondheim’s Company at Lincoln Center

Deaf Broadway, a theater company founded on Stephen Sondheim’s 90th birthday in 2020, tonight performed the musical “Company” at Lincoln Center’s Damrosch Park. How? They projected the filmed version of the live 2011 production at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall that featured a starry cast including Neil Patrick Harris and Patti LuPone, adding vivid captions, while eleven actors simultaneously performed the roles in American Sign Language.

The result made for a fascinating evening of theater, as I think these video and photographs attest.
