Equal Access

In order to ensure that individuals with disabilities have the same opportunities to participate in, and benefit from, the Department of Performing Arts performances, all wheelchair locations and their adjacent companion seat will be held for purchase exclusively by wheelchair or scooter users, until the last non-wheelchair accessible location seat is sold. At that time, all wheelchair locations are released for sale on first-come, first-served bases to both wheelchair and non-wheelchair users.
