“Cursed Child” Broadway Included in Upcoming Autism Friendly Performances

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway is one of several New York productions included in the Theatre Development Fund’s (TDF) accessibility programs for its upcoming 11th season. Audiences will be able to see TDF Autism Friendly Performances of Cursed Child, The Lion King, Wicked, and for the first time, The Nutcracker at New York City Ballet.

Director of TDF Accessibility Programs Lisa Carling is grateful for the expansion and inclusion.

We have wanted to expand AFP to dance, and The Nutcracker was the obvious choice for a family outing during the holidays. We’re grateful to the folks at NYC Ballet for their cooperation. It will be a spectacular and life-changing experience for so many in the audience.

TDF’s accessibility season will begin on October 2. Playbill states that an additional show will be announced in the upcoming weeks. You can learn more about TDF Autism Friendly Performances on the official site.

It’s wonderful to see Cursed Child Broadway in this lineup for accessibility. This news comes a few weeks after the announcement that Cursed Child San Francisco is offering a student matinee at the end of this month, and Cursed Child Melbourne offered an interpreted performance for deaf viewers on August 7.

Will you have the chance to enjoy any of these performances within the next few months?
