Deaf Actor takes lead in Shakespeare

A Northern Virginia theater is offering Shakespeare--with a deaf actor in the lead role. Ethan Sinnott teaches theater at Gallaudet University and he is staring in the NextStop Theatre Company's production of Richard III. There are two other deaf actors playing roles besides Sinnott. The NextStop production is designed for a hearing audience, but there will be four performances offered entirely in ASL. It starts tomorrow evening and runs through Feb. 23 at the Industrial Strength Theater in Herndon. For more info, click here.
