Post 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' on Broadway to have autism-friendly performances

The Theatre Development Fund (TDF) announced their upcoming season of autism-friendly performances, including one for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway for next March. Details on that can be found below, and tickets are available here.


TDF Autism Friendly Performances present Broadway musicals and plays in a friendly, supportive environment for children and adults who are diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder or other sensitivity issues and their families and friends. Since 2011, TDF has presented more than 15 autism-friendly shows on Broadway, starting with Disney's landmark musical The Lion King.

Some of the many autism-friendly performances on Broadway since then include Mary Poppins, Spider-Man, Wicked, Matilda, Phantom of the Opera, Aladdin and more. TDF's autism-friendly performance of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time was the first autism-friendly performance of a non-musical in Broadway history.

Beyond Broadway, TDF' works with theatres across the country as part of its National Autism Friendly Performances to help create environments that are accessible to all.

The 2019-2020 Season:
  • The Lion King, Sunday September 29, 2019 at 1:00 p.m.
  • Frozen, Sunday November 17, 2019 at 1:00 p.m.
  • Wicked, Sunday February 2, 2020 at 1:00 p.m.
  • Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Sunday March 1, 2020 Part 1 at 1:00 p.m & Part 2 at 6:30 p.m.
  • Aladdin, Sunday May 3, 2020 at 1:00 p.m.

What makes a performance autism-friendly?

Slight adjustments to the production are made, including reduction of any jarring sounds or strobe and spot lights that shine into the audience. House lights are faintly dimmed but remain on. TDF works closely with professionals in the field and with consultants on the autism spectrum to make each show accessible and enjoyable for everyone.

TDF creates resources for each production that help prepare audience members for a day at the theatre. A team of volunteers and autism specialists are available throughout the theatre. Break areas are available to anyone who may need to leave their seats during the performance.
