I was asked to be the ASL consultant for the NY Deaf Theatre’s production of Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde. It has been a rewarding and fun experience working with both Deaf and hearing actors on the script translation. It was my first time in this role, and to work with the amazing production team in trying to create the story in American Sign Language and assist with the script analysis. Tonight, the show opens! I am excited and nervous for the actors! If you are in the New York City area, you should come and check them out! They’ve pushed themselves hard, also the costumes and the set looks fantastic!!!
