Autism-friendly peformance of ‘Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark’ presented by TDF

Our spidey sense is tingling! The Theater Development Fund is once again sponsoring an autism-friendly, special performance of the NY Broadway show Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark. This show was specifically chosen by families as the show their children wanted to see most. As with their past performances of The Lion King and Mary Poppins, the special performance will cut jarring sounds and strobe lights. Quiet areas with beanbag  chairs and coloring books will be available. In advance of the show, TDF will also post social stories on their site, listing out what attendees can expect at the show.

You can buy tickets for the April 27 show at the TDF site:
