    What They're Saying:


    THE NEW YORK TIMES

    “Bartlett Sher not only restored the feminism inherent in MY FAIR LADY but also made the Lincoln Center Theater revival the best Broadway musical production of 2018"

    ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

    "A thing of beauty. A sumptuous new revival of the most perfect musical of all time. A masterful piece of entertainment."

    What makes it autism-friendly:

    To create an autism-friendly performance, the show is being performed in a welcoming, supportive environment for individuals on the autism spectrum, with sensory and communication disorders, or learning disabilities. Slight adjustments to lighting and sound will be made for the performance. In the downstairs theatre lobby there will be a break area staffed by specialists in the field, if anyone needs to leave his or her seats during the show.  A downloadable social narrative (in Word format) with pictures of the theatre and the production will be available on this page, designed to personalize the experience for individuals wishing to prepare for the show. Additional resources for this performance such as a character guide and guide to attending the show will also be available.
