Patrons who wish to reserve accessible seating may contact the box office at email@example.com or (202) 544–7077. A box office associate will be happy to find the best seat location for you. Please let our staff know if you may need assistance entering the event venue.
Assisted listening devices
Our assisted listening devices, which work with headphones or with T-Coil wireless transmission, are available at most performances and events at no extra charge.
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.
For information about the best seat locations from which to see the caption board, contact the box office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (202) 544–7077.
Folger Theatre’s open-captioned performances are generously sponsored by Vinton and Sigrid Cerf.
Open-captioning is available for Our Verse in Time to Come on Wednesday, April 26, 7:00pm at Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company
