What’s with high schools in teen dramas not locking doors. Like seriously. Lock your schools up at night. Beacon Hills constantly had kids roaming the halls day and night. Troy Bolton managed to dance and sing his way through his school at night. Is this a weird American thing to not lock up schools?
1. there are other deaf theatre companies than deaf west, including multiple in new york alone
2. stop writing ableist “deaf west” versions of musicals. ableist aus include
characters hating themselves because of their d/Deafness
placing an importance on a character being heard/heavy emphasis on their voice vs their actual self
anything that would make a show incomprehensible for d/Deaf people, including but not limited to: “sloppy” or “shaky” signing, people standing in front of a character that’s signing, generally obscured hands or faces
My issue with music is that if you don’t have a vision, don’t give it a fucking sound. Bottom line. You got a vision? You give it a sound. You wanna sound like some other shit? Stay in your fucking garage and leave us alone.
