Before Susan Smith, there was Medea. A woman scorned, who in a moment's madness, deliberately killed her two young sons. "I keep asking myself, ' How can she do this ?' " says actress Linda Bove, who plays the title role in Deaf West Theatre's encore production of Euripides' classic tragedy, opening Friday. "Susan Smith wasn't able to give her own husband an answer. And Medea--I don't think of her as a bad woman, not at all. Women of that time were very repressed.

Actors from the "L.A. Law," "Cosby" and "Sesame Street" TV programs gave their support Wednesday to a bill that would require all standard-sized television sets to be able to display captions for deaf or hearing-impaired viewers. Witnesses at a House hearing, including TV stars Richard Dysart, Geoffrey Owens and Linda Bove, said millions of Americans are being excluded from access to broad-based communications systems, particularly TV.

For someone without hearing disabilities, entering the Deaf West Theatre is something like going to a foreign country where you can't quite understand the locals. This feeling is rarely apparent once the lights go down; the compensations and considerations for both the deaf and non-deaf audiences are usually smoothly achieved.

In Deaf West Theatre's production of Federico Garcia Lorca's "The House of Bernarda Alba" at the Ventura Court Theatre, Phyllis Frelich is a solid, oppressive presence as the sadistically strict mother, Bernarda, and Deanne Bray's earthy, rebellious Adela sparks a suitable challenge. Their fiery portrayals blaze much brighter than the rest of the cast.

The Tony-honored musical "Big River: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," a Deaf West Theatre triumph, recognized the talents of deaf and hearing-impaired theater professionals who generally fly under the radar. This week's International Sign Language Theater Festival is intended to do the same, said CJ Jones, a deaf stage and screen actor who heads the nonprofit organization Hands Across Communications, the event's presenter.

To those without children, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles might need some explanation. They're celebrities of the first rank: cartoon characters, TV stars and heroes of their own comic strip. They're on the cover of this week's TV Guide, and they've snagged a spot on Barbara Walters' Oscar Night special. On Sunday morning, the overgrown, overexposed reptiles were the stars at the splashy world premiere of New Line Cinema's "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze."

The Scene: Sunday night's premiere of the new Tri-Star comic film "See No Evil, Hear No Evil," starring Richard Pryor as a blind guy who walks into things a lot and Gene Wilder as a deaf guy who can't hear cars when they're about to hit him. The evening was a benefit for the Blind Children Center; a Manhattan premiere late this week will benefit the New York League for the Hard of Hearing. Guests watched the screening at the Century City Plaza Cinemas, then went outside for an al fresco buffet.

There's a natural affinity between the tragic heroine of "Medea" and the theme of alienation that resonates so poignantly in Deaf West Theatre productions. Medea, the mythical sorceress who betrayed her family and country for the love of Jason, is one of the great outcasts in classical literature. Abandoned by her husband and forced to live amid the fear, mistrust and pity of communities to which she can never belong, her status is not unlike the social fringes occupied by the disabled.

How do you say "rain" in American Sign Language? How do you say "I love you"? How can three adult theater pros make a show for kids so entertaining that an hour flies by before you know it? The answers can be found in "Sign Me a Story," a thoroughly engaging mix of improvisation and story theater--including a wacky version of "The True Story of the Three Little Pigs," Jon Scieszka's book from the wolf's point of view--at Deaf West Children's Theatre.
