Show Closing

This is your last chance to see an off-Broadway show about a deaf man. The Heart is a Lonely Hunter tells the story of John Singer who's best friend is committed to an insane asylum and he moves to a small Southern town during the 1930's. James McDaniel of NYPD Blue stars. The decision to cast a hearing actor in the lead role angered some members of the deaf acting community who said a deaf actor could have played the role with more accuracy and depth. The show closes this week at the New York Theatre Workshop.
