Don Jones has been translating the arts for the hearing-impaired for more than a quarter century, but he’s not the only one … at least not anymore. Last month, Theatre 3 announced its partnership with the Deaf Action Center to begin interpreted performances of its shows this coming season, in both the mainstage and smaller Theatre Too space.

The first show to received simultaneous performance in American Sign Language is The Novelist, pictured, which is currently running, but if you missed it, just plan to attend the second Thursday of every show this season (except for Day Light, which will be interpreted on the third Thursday).

“Everyone at Theatre 3 is pleased about our new collaboration with Deaf Action Center,” says Merrie Brewer, T3’s managing director. “We truly want everyone to feel at home here.”
