Hear Me (formerly Brindlebeast) is a contemporary new musical in two acts about love, healing, and the creative process. Blending spoken language and American Sign Language (ASL), this bi-lingual,
bi-cultural, seven-character musical explores the premise that everyone has a personal demon--
a beast--and the way you confront that beast defines the quality of your life.
The world of Hear Me is hearing and Deaf, straight
and gay. The protagonist’s quest is everyone’s quest: to confront his/her inner beast in order to love and be loved.
Hear Me incorporates ASL, movement, dance, and video and still projections, including those of illustrations from Beware the Brindlebeast, a picture book that I wrote and illustrated, .
Since 2010, Hear Me has had five readings in NYC. We now look forward to working in a regional or off-Broadway theater with the full script and score, ASL, movement, choreography, and the graphic elements that are intrinsic to this musical
