In other Broadway news, the Theatre Development Fund, a non-profit organization that focuses on creating accessible theatre, is planning two more sensory-friendly shows for 2012. This largely stems from the success of The Lion King’s autism-friendly performance last year. The performance was continually sold out, with more than 1,000 families the waiting list.
According to TicketNews.com in the Feb. 16th article:
Such altered performances offer the opportunity for those unable to sit through a regular performance to enjoy the thrill of live theater, while also creating a safe environment. The changes made to the show allow autistic people to stay focused longer while enabling them to truly enjoy the experience. In case anyone needs a break during the show, a “quiet room” is available with bean bag chairs and coloring books.
We believe that this is a very exciting advancement for the theatre industry – what do you think?
