Audio Described/Captioned/Signed Performances

“D-Scriptive is a revolutionary audio description system for patrons who are blind or low vision, available at every single performance. During the show, the audience member hears a detailed description of all the visual aspects and action of the production, including staging, choreography, sets, lighting, costumes, physical humor and intentions, and much of the Playbill and theatre information. It is synchronized perfectly to the show’s cueing system and adjusts itself according to any fluctuations in the performance.

To reserve D-Scriptive for use at the theatre: First, purchase your tickets. Then, reserve your D-Scriptive device by contacting Sound Associates by phone at 212-582-7678 or by email at [email protected] The device will be waiting for you at the Sound Associates Infrared kiosk inside the theatre on the day/night of the show. There is never a charge to use D-Scriptive.

I-Caption, a ground-breaking hand-held personal captioning system for theatregoers who are deaf or hard of hearing, simultaneously displays verbatim texts of the entire script as it unfolds on stage, as well as announcements and show information at every performance. Like D-Scriptive, it is synchronized to the show’s cueing system and adjusts itself according to fluctuations in the performance.

To reserve I-Caption and Sound Enhancement headsets for use at the theatre: First, purchase your tickets. Then, reserve your I-Caption device by contacting Sound Associates by phone at 212-582-7678 or by email at [email protected] The device will be waiting for you at the Sound Associates Infrared kiosk inside the theatre on the day/night of the show.
