BWW Reviews: VISIBLE LANGUAGE from WSC Avant Bard & Gallaudet UniversityBWW Reviews: VISIBLE LANGUAGE from WSC Avant Bard & Gallaudet University
by Ellen Burns - Oct 28, 2014

Collaboration is on full view in this production that touches on DC history, the deaf community in particular, and the importance of communication in general. Theater company WSC Avant Bard, has worked with the theater community at DC's vaunted university for the deaf and deaf studies, Gallaudet University, to create a work of musical theater in which deaf and hearing actors and creative artists come together to tell a very personal story. A story, as it turns out, that is both historically true-to-life and theatrically interesting. Alexander Graham Bell, Edward Miner Gallaudet, Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan, and, most importantly, deaf students of the time, all converge in the Washington of the late 1800s in a personal, professional and political dialogue about communication, assimilation, education and self respect.
