Addy & Uno, a new children’s musical that explores living with disabilities, is set to begin performances September 2 at the 14th Street Y. Directed by Emmy nominee Donna Drake, the production features concept and book by Dr. Nava R. Silton and music and lyrics by Bonnie Gleicher.
The musical features five characters (represented by puppets): Addy, who has ADHD, Uno, who has autism, Melody, who is visually impaired, Seemore, who is hearing impaired, and RJ, who has paraplegia. Though each has a different disability, they are able to harness their own special strengths and protect themselves and each other from bullying.
