Cat Brewer directed and produced the feature-length documentary Sign the Show, which highlights the challenges and barriers faced by the Deaf and hard-of-hearing community as they fight to gain access to live entertainment specifically music, comedy, and theater.

Brewer served as an educator for the past 22 years with no background in the film industry but had a wild idea to create a documentary that advocates for an often underserved and marginalized population of 40 plus million people in the US alone. She purchased a camera and traveled across the United States interviewing people like Kelly Clarkson, D.L. Hughley, Waka Flocka Flame, DJ Whoo Kid, Camryn Manheim, André 3000, Chuck D., Ani DiFranco, Matt Maxey (DEAFinitely Dope), Julie Rems Smario (LEAD-K), Nyle DiMarco and so many more in hopes of bringing about a conversation and awareness to the things that hearing people often take for granted.

Cat Brewer hopes her film will create a cultural shift in entertainment by making open access the norm because she believes no one should have to fight to get access to things that bring them joy.
