Read about NYC's best theatre and dance productions and watch video interviews with innovative artists
Meet New York Deaf Theatre, the longest-running company of its kind in New York City and the third oldest Deaf troupe in the U.S. Founded in 1979, NYDT provides an artistic home for actors, creators and designers who are Deaf or hard-of-hearing where they can see their own lives and experiences reflected onstage. NYDT's shows are accessible to both audiences who can hear and those who are Deaf or hard of hearing thanks to a variety of tools and techniques.
This video was directed by Andrew Block, and shot and edited by Scott Fetterman.
