‘I Was Most Alive With You’ Theater Review: Making a Case Against the Book of Job
September 01, — October 14, Mainstage Theater. How can he see this unexpected test, that threatens to cast him and his loved ones into darkness, as the ultimate gift? The play will be simultaneously performed in American Sign Language by a shadow cast of Deaf actors. The mission of The Roy Cockrum Foundation is to award grants to support world-class performing arts projects in not-for-profit professional theaters throughout the United States. The Roy Cockrum Foundation enables theaters to reach beyond their normal scope of activities and undertake ambitious and creative productions. A marvel of polyphony, featuring standout performances. I want to see His face.
While the subject matter is one that has been fascinating for millennia, the production is startlingly original and creative. Lucas took both of his inspirations seriously and decided that he wanted I Was Most Alive With You to be fully accessible to both deaf and hearing audiences. The play unfolds as a kind of series of flashbacks, as Ash and his writing partner Astrid Marianna Bassham try to resume their collaboration after a three-and-a-half-month break. They are back in their office for the first time and Ash is clearly agitated, unfocused and nervous. He says he just keeps going over and over in his mind what happened, and if he could have done anything different. Tell the story.
I Was Most Alive with You-the first production of the theater company's season-features two casts simultaneously speaking and signing, with subtitles and intermittent spoken interpretation, making ita rare example of a work that is equally accessible to Deaf and hearing audiences.

Each brought to me great clarity.
Two writers of a long-running TV series tinker with an intriguing concept. They want to develop a new show, using the Book of Job as their source material. By act two, Knox is no longer counting his blessings. Obviously, their attitude toward sign language turns into a major topic of conversation that quickly devolves into much screaming and door-slamming, but has little to do with all the crap God is about to dump on everybody. Lucas makes sure that every other disaster in the Good Book shows up to test them. What should be wickedly absurd or, at least, a very good soap opera if directed by Cecil B.
