That's the message of this new video from the team behind Studio 54's production of Children Of A Lesser God.
The play traces the relationship between a deaf woman, Sarah, and a speech teacher, James. The two love each other, but struggle to communicate. James wants Sarah to learn to speak, and Sarah wants James to accept her as she is.
Check out the video and hear the cast talk about love and listening--and why this show is so important right now.
