Talking to the two men who make Quasimodo come to life on stage.
“The La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts isn’t afraid to bring deafness to the center stage, and that’s thanks in part to two great actors – John McGinty and Dino Nicandros, who together play the role of Quasimodo in the latest production of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”. This production holds true to Hugo’s novel and makes Quasimodo deaf – his character is then played by McGinty, who also happens to be a deaf actor, and Nicanrdos, acting as his voice.”
I was honored to be able to speak to both John McGinty and Dino Nicandros, the two actors who together play the body and voice of Quasimodo in Disney’s “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” stage play. The article is longer, to allow for some of the weightier topics we discussed, but is divided by both headings and images to make reading easier.
The final article shared on DisneyExaminer gained over 1000 shares on Facebook. It was also shared by the La Mirada Theatre of Performing Arts’ social media.
