The Theatre Development Fund (TDF) has their 11th season of Autism Friendly Performances will include performances of Broadway's The Lion King, Wicked, and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and, for the first time, George Balanchine's The Nutcracker at New York City Ballet. The non-profit's accessibility season begins October 2, and will reveal an additional show in the coming weeks.
"We have wanted to expand AFP to dance and The Nutcracker was the obvious choice for a family outing during the holidays," says Director of TDF Accessibility Programs Lisa Carling. "We’re grateful to the folks at NYC Ballet for their cooperation. It will be a spectacular and life-changing experience for so many in the audience."
Previous performances presented by the TDF program include Cats, Come From Away, Elf: The Musical, Kinky Boots, Mary Poppins, Matilda, My Fair Lady, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, The King and I, and The Phantom of the Opera.
