More Information


Fourth grade is not easy and after spending a year planning her “positively purple” birthday party, Megan finds herself at odds with new student Alexis. To Megan, Alexis has it all: beauty, brains, and athletics—she’s practically perfect in every way. Though Megan tries to be nice to her, Alexis is anything but friendly, making Megan wonder, “Does she not like me because I’m deaf?” When they’re forced to collaborate on a science project, Megan discovers Alexis’s secret.

Based on the children’s book by Academy Award® winner Marlee Matlin (Best Actress, Children of a Lesser God) and Doug Cooney, this touching new musical—simultaneously performed in spoken English and American Sign Language—is an important reminder that despite first impressions, nobody’s perfect.

The musical production is co-commissioned and co-produced with the Kennedy Center and VSA and is the first show to tour the U.S. with open captioning. Based on the book by Academy Award® winner Marlee Matlin and Doug Cooney with script and lyrics by Doug Cooney, music by Deborah Wicks La Puma and direction by Coy Middlebrook, this original musical production will be simultaneously performed in spoken English and American Sign Language and will feature captioning at every performance. The production is recommended for audiences ages nine and up.
