The best 'straight' play I've seen in years---you'll talk for hours about the implications of this play. Masterful play, beautifully performed.

First act of this drama about a deaf child in a hearing but not listening family was gripping; second added little but length. The main characters are excellent.

Very interesting, and poignant discussion of oralist vs. signing for the deaf world, and how we all need, and struggle to be heard. A believable, well developed dysfunctional family. Can't give it 5 stars, however, due to the the irony of poor speech intelligibility. The...More

Excellent drama and casting. Very emotional and complex. See it before it gets to Broadway because it's going for sure!

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the

this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
