Sweeney Todd in American Sign Language
JULY 31 2022
IN RESIDENCE: July 23-July 31, 2022
Theater is a space for everyone, and Deaf Broadway is here to prove just that. Returning to Lincoln Center after last year’s performance of Into the Woods, Deaf Broadway presents an ASL production of Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd. Shadowed by a filmed version of the musical, Deaf actors bring life to the haunting tale of the demon barber of Fleet Street.
IRT Theater is a grassroots laboratory for independent theater and performance in New York City, providing space and support to a new generation of artists. Tucked away in the old Archive Building in Greenwich Village, IRT’s mission is to build a community of emerging and established artists by creating a home for the development and presentation of new work.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York State Legislature; New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in Partnership with the City Council; A.R.T./New York’s NYC Small Theatres Fund made possible with support from the Howard Gilman Foundation & support for ASL interpretation provided in part through funding from Access A.R.T./New York.
