In Barbara Granoff's business model, sign language is not only for the hearing impaired. "The Big Surprise" is the first DVD in what Granoff hopes will be a series called "Sign-A-Lot." The 30-minute program features a cast of ebullient children who are joined by two animated gloves named "Lulu Lefty" and "Ronnie Righty." The DVD was released Sept. 12 by Granoff's Newport Beach-based company, See Me Sign LLC. In the first weeks since the video's release, Granoff said she has been relying on word-of-mouth marketing.

It began like any other foreign language class -- with the most basic sentence in communication. The students in room 12 at Woodland Elementary School took turns introducing themselves to the rest of the class: "My name is Kaitlyn," "My name is Laura," back and forth it went. There was only one twist -- as the students spoke, the classroom was dead silent. That was because rather than French or Spanish or Arabic, the children were learning to say their names in sign language.

Marjorie E. Terrien has kindly enlightened us -- the immigrants who may not be of normal intelligence -- that we have to be careful when we cross the street. We have to watch out for those careless Glendale drivers. But she doesn't tell us what, if anything, she is doing about those drivers. And are "these" drivers from "those" countries where traffic signs are ignored, or were they born and bred in the good ol' U.S. of A? Does she talk to them too?

Swinging her long pink dreadlocks and tapping her black boot, TL Forsberg sang along to pounding drums, surging guitars and the sound of her own commanding voice that she had recorded earlier that day in Jaggo studios in Los Angeles. The 34-year-old singer and songwriter from Burbank has been hearing impaired since childhood. "I get the opportunity to dispel myths about deaf people, what they look like, what the talk like," she said. Forsberg is in the midst or recording several tracks for a demo album, which she hopes will eventually be experienced by hearing and deaf audiences alike, that will include bottom end frequencies that produce greater vibrations and have visual components like a DVD that includes the lyrics in sign language.

Marla Martin True to its name, "Misery Street" delves deep into the painful heart of the modern urban experience, stays there just long enough to make the relentless ache felt by the audience, then surfaces into surprising hopefulness; a tribute to the indomitable human spirit. Presented in the intimate Gene Bua Theater in Burbank, this world premiere play speaks eloquently of despair and redemption, love, loss and recovery. The Shaka Originals company, many of whom live in the Glendale/Burbank area, is a large, ensemble cast of extremely talented actors including two children, whose performances added greatly to the pathos and tenderness of the play.
