The Wall Street Journal

Four new Broadway productions, including the Tony-nominated musical “Catch Me If You Can,” will be outfitted with technology that allows blind and deaf theatergoers to more fully experience live theater.

The services will be available at “Catch Me” in early June (the production opened in April). The speed of the effort is unusual: Producers typically wait until a show is financially secure before investing in the services, which cost about $35,000.

The not-for-profit jumpstarting the process is Alliance for Inclusion in the Arts, whose Board of Directors I sit on.
