Personal Captioning Devices

For select performances of The Who’s Tommy, the Theatre Company is continuing to test a new system to greatly expand our services for patrons who are Deaf or hard of hearing: Personal Closed Captioning Devices.

Each device is handheld and configured with closed captioning software, enabling users to enjoy private captioning services in any seating location. These devices will be available at all public performances May 4 - 27, and may be reserved in advance while purchasing tickets (subject to availability). Simply follow the instructions in the pop-up box while buying online or request the service from your box office agent while purchasing on the phone or at the counter.
