Catching a show on Broadway is a highlight for many a trip to New York City. For visitors with a disability however, there’s often an anxiety around whether their specific needs will be met by the theatre.
A new website www.theatreaccess.nyc allows visitors to investigate the accessibility features of each theatre and performance. As well as indicating whether the building is suitable for wheelchairs, the website also lists details of assisted listening devices for those with hearing impairments, audio descriptions for the visually impaired, and adjustments made to the production to accommodate the needs of autistic customers.
More details can be found on The Broadway Blog.
