Our Town Reviews
Deanne Bray from Oak Park, California
OUR TOWN-THE UNIVERSAL CONCEPT AND CLASSIC
Our Town can be challenging when it comes to having Deaf and hearing actors work together in terms of trying to convey the story with a bilingual and Simultaneous Communication approach. The Simcom is not a natural language but in theatre/art, you can do anything to bend the rules and make it work. But the Bilingual Approach where one is speaking English alone and the other is signing ASL alone is entertaining for both Signers and non signers sitting in the audience. Awesome job on making that work!

OUR TOWN, PASADENA PLAYHOUSE
The performance is nothing like what you would expect for such a traditional and iconic play. That said, it is AMAZING. The deaf actors bring such a level of heart and honesty and the direction was chilling and so nuanced that this show deserves to run and tour for quite some time. The entire cast was so present and can feel the audiences energy. Kudos to all as this looks like a beast of a show to mount. Ms. Jane K brings star quality but felt uneasy in her skin - seemingly on the outside looking in while the ensemble were brilliant, a true tour de force. The direction was flawless as was the choice of set and choreography. Bravo to all. My family and I are enormously proud.
