Re: “Tribes listens closely to one family talking in several frequencies

Indeed, Tribes was a wonderful play. The actors were fantastic. I read the script before I went to see this production, so it's really helped me understand what's going on in the play. However, I'm speaking for the Deaf and hard-of-hearing audience who rely on the interpreters for accessing ASL in order to understand the play. According to the perspectives of Deaf individuals, including myself, it was difficult to watch only two female interpreters take over six characters' roles and determine who was speaking for whom in those acts and scenes. The delivery was not very smooth. That would have been much more appreciative if Unicorn Theatre had included either a Deaf ASL specialist, a Deaf theater patron/consultant, or a RID-certified and qualified interpreter who's specialized in theatrics, so they would have collaborated and come up with a better strategy together to ensure that the Deaf and hard-of-hearing audience would have as equal access as the hearing audience does. Additionally, they would even have enjoyed it much more without getting lost in translation. Oh, the irony.

Re: “Lily Tomlin is still stirring up trouble

I don't think this new movie is her first starring role. Didn't she get top billing for "The Incredible Shrinking Woman"? Probably others, too. Should have done your homework out of respect for this comedy legend.
