Audio Described Performances

Closed audio description improves access for blind and partially sighted patrons by providing a live verbal description of the visual elements of a performance (sets, costumes, and nonverbal onstage action) as well as pre-show notes. These performances require an earphone and receiver that can be obtained from the Next Stage Box Office. Please identify yourself at the Box Office least 25 minutes prior to the performance start times to make use of this service. Support persons attend free however they must also be issued a ticket. Service animals are always welcome at Next Stage.

    Literally Titanium 

    In the age of body positivity, where does chronic illness fit? Disabled artist Ophira Calof plays her body as a character finally getting its moment in the spotlight, using music, comedy and storytelling to explore the relationship between her body and mind as they navigate a world that wasn’t built for them. This show includes an informal conversation at the end of each performance. Every performance of this show includes access measures.
