They explain how Deaf West Theatre Company, a sign language theatre company, decided to produce the musical "Big River"; why that is not a bad idea, as many initially thought; the integration of signing into the choreography of the show; and how 2 actors, one hearing and one deaf, shared each of the principal roles.”
