Visit Yale Rep
Yale Rep offers all of our patrons the most comprehensive accessibility services program in Connecticut. For more information or to provide feedback about your experience, contact Laura Kirk at 203.432.1522 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Relaxed performances are inclusive theatrical experiences. The front of house atmosphere is less formal and more supportive of patrons who have sensory, communication, movement, and learning needs. Relaxed performances present the full artistic vision of the production with minor modifications in the auditorium and public spaces, including house lights set at a low level throughout the performance and a break area for anyone who would like to step out during the show. Materials are provided in advance to help attendees prepare for the experience, including detailed directions to the theater and information about the content of the play.
