In the New York theatre world, deaf perspectives are severely under-represented. Shows like Deaf West’s Spring Awakening and the work by the New York Deaf Theatre are encouraging, but they are also anomalies. Theatre productions that fully integrate deaf, hard-of-hearing, and hearing people in the cast and creative teams are even more rare.
