Audio-Described Performances

Audio Description is a carefully timed, live narration of the visual aspects of a performance. It is broadcast via a radio transmitter to patrons who wear a single headphone receiver enabling them to hear both the on-stage dialogue and the describer's narration. 

Headsets must be reserved and limited seating is available. Braille and large print programs will be available at the performances. Plan to arrive 30 minutes early for audio described program notes and set description. Guide dogs are welcome. Tickets are $15 for each blind/low-vision patron and a guest. To reserve tickets and headsets, please contact the Access Coordinator at 617 273 1558 or email mobrien@huntingtontheatre.bu.edu.

Blind school groups are also invited to attend the Student Matinee Series, several performances of which are audio-described. Schools are provided with study and curriculum guides in advance and with preview tickets for teachers (on request). Although geared for school groups, individual blind or visually impaired students accompanied by an adult are also welcome. Student tickets are $12, with a limited number of free tickets available on a first-come, first-served basis. For student matinee information or reservations, please contact the Access Coordinator at 617 273 1558, or email mobrien@huntingtontheatre.bu.edu.
