American Sign Language Interpreted Performances

One matinee performance and one evening performance will feature ASL interpretation.

Friday, February 22nd at 8pm

Sunday February 24th at 2pm

Arrival, Stairways, Doors, and Seating

Studio 914 (click for map) uses street parking on 20th Street as well as on Avenue I and Avenue J as available. A loading zone is available 1/2 a block from the main doors just past the bus stop on the North side of 20th Street at Avenue I.

The venue will be open roughly 30minutes before the performance with the theatre opening sometime thereafter. A non-alcoholic (except on opening night) confession will be available in the lobby.

The venue does not require the audience to use stairs. The outside doors lead to a small entryway which leads to another door to the main foyer. Unfortunately, these doors are not automatic. There will be staff in the lobby to assist as required and a doorbell can alert staff inside if needed.

There are double doors into the theatre which will be propped open before the performance. The theatre has risers with chairs, as well as chair seating on the floor level. Wheelchair users and those sitting with them can be easily accommodated by removing chairs from the floor-level. Front of House staff will be happy to handle this. Staff will be stationed in the foyer and at the doors to the theatre.

Washrooms 

The washrooms are down a short hallway from the theatre and have wheelchairs-accessible stalls.

Washrooms are (unfortunately) labeled by gender. We encourage you to use whichever you feel most comfortable using and we will support you in that choice.

Audio Amplification, Lighting, and Atmosphere 

Sound cues are played through a speaker system. Some cues are quite loud and abrupt. The audience spends most of the play in the dark with bright lights focused on the performers onstage. At times, the audience lights will rise slightly and the audience will be visible. Lighting and projection affects will sometimes be abrupt and potentially startling. There are no strobe-lights used, however one projection cue has a similar effect. Smudging takes place onstage so there will be the scent of sage and some smoke in the space.

Leaving During the Performance

We encourage you to take care of yourself during the performance (see our Content Warnings page as well). If you need to leave during the performance for whatever reason, please do. Front of House staff will be in the lobby and may be able to assist you. You will be re-seated at their discretion with the aim of not disrupting the show. This may require you to wait until intermission of the end of the show.
