The union of hearing actors, deaf actors, actors who played all the instruments. Seeing the hearing actors cue the deaf actors in musical moments. It was such beautiful ensemble work and storytelling.

I felt like I was in church. It was a master class in stillness, grace and elegance.

The freedom they had in their bodies in these roles was so amazing to watch.
