The first autism-friendly performance of a Broadway show was Disney’s landmark musical The Lion King. This performance was so successful that Autism Theatre Initiative has presented many autism-friendly performances of Broadway including Mary Poppins, Spider-Man, Wicked, Matilda, 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. TDF’s Autism Theatre Initiative also consults with theatres and presenting houses across the country as part of their National Advisory Partnerships.
