URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/community_calendar/item/flowers_for_algernon

Using its signature, award-winning combination of signed and voiced theater to bring new perspective to a modern American classic, Deaf West Theatre presents Flowers for Algernon at the Whitefire Theatre. Poignant, funny and thought-provoking, Flowers for Algernon follows the story of Charlie Gordon, willing subject of an extraordinary experiment, and the strange interweaving of his life with Algernon, a mouse whose intelligence has been increased threefold by the daring new procedure. When the operation is performed on intellectually disabled Charlie, his mental capacity changes and so does his life. Sept. 26-Nov. 3; Deaf West Theatre @ the Whitefire Theatre; 13500 Ventura Blvd., Sherman Oaks, CA, 91423; $20-$30; (818) 762-2998 or www.deafwest.org
