Any other time of year, Paris can be an overpriced tourist trap full of hostile French people. But that takes a backseat to romance around Valentine's Day, when we can be a little more forgiving to the aphrodisiacal City of Light. That's where Obie-winning playwright Charles Mee sets his new love story Fêtes de la Nuit, in which a variety of mates come together at a sidewalk café. One such pair is played by deaf actors who relay their lines entirely in sign language, without voice interpretation. Says director Kim Weild: "The play is about communication and love, and what it takes to understand one another." If it takes ASL, you're in luck: There will be two fully interpreted performances February 20 and 24.
