Audio Descriptive Services

Audio description helps to ensure that people who are blind or have low vision enjoy equal access to performances. Audio description uses the natural pauses in dialogue or narration to provide essential visual information. A trained describer inserts descriptions of critical visual elements: actions, appearance of characters, body language, costumes, settings, lighting, etc. Descriptions are delivered through a wireless earphone allowing people who are blind or have low vision to sit anywhere in the audience.

Audio descriptions are designated for the Broadway Saturday Matinee performance. A two-week advance notice is required.
