Haptic Tour & Live Audio-Described Performance - November 12
There is a haptic tour and live audio-described performance of 2023 Hedwig & The Angry Inch on Sunday, November 12. Doors will open at 3:45 PM for check-in. We recommend arriving early as the tour will begin promptly at 4 PM. The audio-described performance will start at 5 PM. If you are scheduling a ride home, a good pick-up time is 7:45 PM. Get tickets for November 12.
We are proud to partner with Gravity Access to provide a haptic tour and live audio description for our blind and low-vision audience members. Our April 9 performance includes a live pre-show tour that allows patrons to experience the space, performers, costumes, and objects - in addition to key movement elements in the piece - through touch, their own movement, hearing, and kinesthetic senses. Usually lasting 20 to 30 minutes, these tours lay a multi-sensory foundation to support the audio description service and are intended to focus on access for patrons with visual impairments.
During the performance, patrons can use devices provided for free by Gravity Access to listen to a live audio description of the show.
For sighted patrons, the performance is otherwise the same as on any other evening.
If you have questions or would like assistance booking your tickets, feel free to email us at email@example.com or call 510.841.6500 ext. 303. We're happy to help!
