Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is that Broadway musical version of Spider-Man that was plagued by accidents and legal problems.
Now that things are running much smoother for the production, they have announced they will be performing a first-ever autism-friendly production!
The show is going to seriously cut down on things like strobe lights and loud, harsh sounds that could really bother an autistic person.
There will also be autism experts staffing quiet areas inside the theater. They'll have bean bag chairs and coloring books for anyone who is overwhelmed by the show and needs a break.
The director of the Theatre Development Fund, a nonprofit that provides access to live theater, said:
"We're grateful to the show's producers, management and creative staff and crew for accommodating the Autism Theatre Initiative and uniting with us to make the show an unforgettable experience for all."
The nonprofit bought every single matinee ticket there was for the April 27th show at Foxwoods Theatre and will offer them at a discount to autistic kids and adults.
That's so great!!
Tickets will range in price from $35-$80, so if you have an autistic family member, friend or have autism yourself, grab a ticket and go see one heck of a play!
