STAGE TUBE: First Look Russell Harvard, Susan Pourfar and More in Highlights of CTG's TRIBES

March 15
4:14 PM 2013

The West Coast premiere of "Tribes" is now running at the Center Theatre Group/Mark Taper Forum. The Barrow Street Theatre production of Nina Raine's penetrating new comic drama about belonging, family and the value of communication continues through April 14, 2013. BroadwayWorld has a first look at highlights of the production below.

At the center of "Tribes" is Billy, the youngest son of a raucous family of intellectuals obsessed with self expression. As his parents and siblings verbally spar and compete for attention, Billy, who is deaf, catches what he can by lip-reading.

When Billy meets Sylvia, a young woman who is an expert at sign language and is losing her hearing, he asks her to teach him how to sign, and for the first time, he is introduced to the deaf community. Billy's life is transformed as a different world is unveiled to him. But when a new door opens, does another have to be closed?
