John Leguizamo's one-man Broadway play Freak will present unusual challenges for TDF sign-language interpreters for the hearing impaired when they do the show as scheduled April 14.
The show, which includes many Spanish and "Spanglish" phrases, also contains several R-rated passages. TDF (the Theatre Development Fund) engaged Maria Izaguirre, a bilingual interpreter who has seen the show several times and rehearsed with Leguizamo.
In a statement, she told Playbill On-Line that there are times when she'll put her hands down because Leguizamo's "abundant physicality will be expressive enough."
Special $17.50 rush tickets are available for the first two rows of tonight's performance at the Cort Theatre on West 48th St. in New York.
