  1. Hello. I saw your magnificent work in Montparnasse. You gave the play another dimension without distracting from the story itself. The blocking and your combination of interaction and apartness from the actors was so well done. And your acting – gestures, face, energy – added a glow to the whole performance.

    You functioned like chorus… not simpley a subtitle for the hearing impaired. Cool. I never imagined it. Thanks

    • You are welcome!
      I really appreciate your comments. It is valuable to receive feedback not only from Deaf who use the service but also the hearing patrons who are enjoying the performance as well! Thank you very much for coming to see the show!
