Uno has plenty of mathematical ability, but he also has a disability: autism. In this new musical featuring a cast of puppets and people, Uno gains the courage to enter his school’s math competition with help from friends who face challenges of their own: Addy has attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder; Melody is visually impaired; Seemore has hearing loss; and RJ uses a wheelchair. Addy & Uno is a heartfelt and hilarious journey celebrating hope, big dreams and the beauty of differences.
Created by Dr. Nava R. Silton, a developmental psychologist, ADDY & UNO is a spinoff of her ten comic book series Realabilities used to teach kids about their peers with differing abilities. “It’s people first”, says Dr. Silton, “It’s RJ who loves rockets first, it’s Uno who loves math, it’s Addy who is hilarious and spunky, and they have a disability. We want the audience to get to know them as kids and as people.” The show is directed by Emmy-nominated Donna Drake (Netflix's Julie's Greenroom and John Tartaglia's ImaginOcean), with music by Bonnie Gleicher (singer/songwriter who was seen on Broadway in Jane Eyre), and is produced by Drama Desk nominated Tom D’Angora and Michael D’Angora (NEWSical The Musical, The Marvelous Wonderettes).
