The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts and Deaf West Theatre, the two organizations behind the Tony Award-nominated revival of Spring Awakening, have reunited to bring Edward Albee’s At Home at the Zoo to life in a new production, People's World reports.
The play runs at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Lovelace Studio Theater through March 26.
The evening pairs Albee's 1959 play The Zoo Story with the 70-minute prequel Homelife, written 45 years later in 2004. (Albee died in 2016.)
The more familiar Zoo Story depicts a chance meeting in New York’s Central Park between publishing executive Peter (Troy Kotsur), and manic stranger Jerry (Russell Harvard).
As with Deaf West's other productions, this one combines speaking actors with deaf performers using American Sign Language.
