Signs of a Diva archiveA cabaret style story for anyone who knows the whole YMCA routine or who wants to know the story behind 'I Will Survive'. Tammy (formerly Barbara but had her name changed be deed poll) has to make a life changing decision. Does she consult Tarot cards, read endless horoscopes, discuss with her therapist or talk to her friends? Tammy friends are the flat vinyl sort - strong yet vulnerable women she identifies with - Judy Garlands, Arethas, Ninas, Dollys, Dustys, Patsys, Roberta Flacks of this world. An emotional roller coaster of signed songs. Performing to a soundtrack that includes iconic performances from Divas through the ages. Signs of a Diva is a celebratory way of bringing deaf and hearing people together and creating an evening of making old songs new: new for hearing people seeing them signed and new for deaf people who may have never known the words and stories of the songs.
