Inclusive Theatre

Working Logo - large block letters WORKING with people on top of the letters showing different types of work Tonight I saw the musical Working at Dominican University. I love Studs Terkel's books, and this production was very enjoyable. What was particularly cool was that this musical was signed. One of the interpreters was an ensemble performer - she danced and signed- and the other was in the traditional American Sign Language role, a little off to the side of the stage interpreting what was spoken and sung. This is the first time I have ever been to a play or musical that was signed, and it was great to see it at my college!

There's one more performance tomorrow at 3pm. For anyone who lives in the Chicago area (Karen?), it would be a great way to spend the afternoon. Tickets are only $15. The show is about 1 1/2 hours long.

Hey David, it sounds like a fun musical but I've folks from out of town here today. Thanks for the heads up about it though!
