WATCH: Backstage at Autism-Friendly Performances of 'Wicked' and 'Aladdin'

Date: Mar 26, 2018

Earlier this year, TDF hosted autism-friendly performances of two beloved Broadway musicals: Wicked and Aladdin. Not only did the audiences have an amazing time, the performers did, too. During both shows, cast members took over our TDF Instagram feed to give theatre lovers behind-the-scenes peeks at the productions. Because the house lighting is kept at half for these special performances, the actors are able to see the audience reacting to the show, which they absolutely love. Check out what they had to say about doing these performances in the videos below. If you're interested in attending TDF's autism-friendly performances, sign up to be notified about future events.
