The EMERSON COLONIAL THEATRE is the longest continually operating theatre in Boston, MA. In its storied history since opening to the public in 1900, the theatre has debuted such seminal Broadway shows as Anything Goes, Porgy and Bess, Oklahoma!, Born Yesterday, Annie Get Your Gun, Follies, A Little Night Music, Grand Hotel, and La Cage aux Folles, among others. Reviving a great theatrical tradition, the newly restored Emerson Colonial Theatre re-opened its doors in summer 2018 with the pre-Broadway World Premiere of Moulin Rouge! The Musical. A theatre for the community, Emerson Colonial Theatre continues to contribute to the rich cultural landscape of Boston, with a new and varied program of Broadway shows, live music, comedy, speakers and events.

What is American Sign Language?

During American Sign Language performances, skilled theatrical Interpreters use American Sign Language to interpret the performances on stage. The Interpreters work with a Deaf ASL Consultant to translate the production into American Sign Language. The audience can see both the Interpreters and the stage action simultaneously.

What is Audio Description?

Audio description is a live narration of the visual aspects of the performance broadcasted to visually impaired patrons who wear a small receiver (headset). This narration includes pre-show descriptions of the theatre and of the costume and scenic elements as well as narration of blocking and choreography between the show’s dialogue and musical numbers.

What is Open Captioning?

Open Captioning is a form of accessibility for the deaf and hard of hearing population in the United States. The website describes Open Captioning as “text displayed simultaneous to live speech, dialogue or performance”. This technology is now utilized by theaters nationwide. It provides hearing impaired patrons with the complete script and song text for live performances on small screens directly adjacent to audience seating.

Assisted Listening services are available for all performances on your phone. To use your personal device, download the MobileConnect app. A limited number of Sennheiser listening devices and ipods are also available for use at each performance.
