Open-captioned performances

Open-captioning makes live theater performances accessible by using a non-intrusive caption board at the front of the stage which scrolls the entire text of the production in real time. Folger Theatre will offer a open-captioned performance for its production of The Tempest on Saturday, December 10 at 2pm.
For information about the best seat locations from which to see the caption board, contact the box office at or (202) 544–7077. 
Folger Theatre’s open-captioned performances are generously sponsored by Vinton and Sigrid Cerf.
