Assistive listening services
Assisted Listening services are available for all performances. Please visit the House Manager’s podium in the lobby upon entry to receive a listening device.
Captioning services are provided by GalaPro at specified performances through the GalaPro app on your personal device at the discretion of each show.
Service dogs that are trained to provide services or tasks for guests with disabilities are permitted. Examples of services include: guiding a guest who is blind, alerting a guest who is deaf, interrupting a compulsive behavior.
All service dogs must:
• Be under the handler’s control at all times. In most cases this means on a harness or leash.
• Be housebroken.
• Not pose a legitimate, direct threat to health or safety.
• Not take up additional seats unless a ticket has been purchased for the adjacent seat for the service dog.
Emotional support animals
Emotional support animals, sometimes referred to as “comfort animals” or “companion animals”, whose sole function is to provide comfort or support, are not considered service animals under the ADA or the Massachusetts law and are not permitted.
