This American Sign Language Cover of ‘Alexander Hamilton’ Is Great

By

Sarah Tubert is the captain of the National Deaf Women’s Volleyball Team, and she’s got a whole lot of soul in those hands. Watch her put a new kind of life into Hamilton’s “Alexander Hamilton” and feel inspired to love the musical phenomenon in even more ways than you already do. The Facebook video of Tubert, who comes from family of performers with an actor for a father and a singer for a mother, is tagged with the Deaf West Theater, a Los Angeles–based company that stages shows containing both sign-language and spoken-word delivery. Deaf West recently earned three Tony nominations for its revival of Spring Awakening, and has done past productions of Pippin and Big River.
