Broadway SIGNs! CEO/Founder Jo-Ann Dean created the NYC production to promote American Sign Language (ASL), Deaf Artists and Broadway talent on stage, in performing arts and dance for Off Broadway and Cabarets. The cabaret is a perfect art form for artists to directly connect with audiences as they are fully accessible in English and ASL. All performances are created and performed by the Deaf Artists. Russell Harvard (To Kill a Mockingbird, King Lear, Spring Awakening Broadway Revival) first approached Dean to produce his one-man show. Together they sought a venue and started with musical cabarets, pre/post pandemic at The Triad Theater off-broadway. Russell Harvard's From the Ground Up debuted at Feinstein's 54 Below again to a sold out house produced by Dean's Broadway SIGNs! Clips of Russell's stellar musical performances appeared in Emmy Awarded Fox 5 News Entertainment Special Breaking a Sound Barrier with Newscaster Chris Welch. Frank DiLella's On Stage NY1 featured Broadway SIGNs! Pick of the Week "a must see ASL Musical cabaret."
