Broadway In Cincinnati has an ongoing commitment to building new audiences and making theatre accessible for all patrons. During each season, Broadway In Cincinnati offers Audio Described and American Sign Language performances for most productions at the Aronoff Center.
Audio description is a live narration of the visual aspects of the performance broadcasted to visually impaired patrons who wear a small receiver (headset). This narration includes pre-show descriptions of the theatre and of the costume and scenic elements as well as narration of blocking and choreography between the show’s dialogue and musical numbers.
Audio described performances are usually the first Saturday matinee of a show’s run.
AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE
During American Sign Language performances, skilled theatrical Interpreters use American Sign Language to interpret the performances on stage. The Interpreters work with a Deaf ASL Consultant to translate the production into American Sign Language. The audience can see both the Interpreters and the stage action simultaneously.
American Sign Language performances are usually the first Sunday matinee of a show’s run.
