New York City has the best theater in the world. But what if your vision is poor? Does that mean you can't enjoy Shakespeare, musical extravaganzas or even some hip new off-Broadway show? Not at all.
Andrea Day is an audio describer. She works in theaters in New York and on the West Coast, describing what happens on stage. She told us what it's like to be just one step ahead of the action.
But first we spoke to Lisa Carling, the director of Theatre Development Fund's accessibility programs. She decribes TDF's many programs for people who are hard of hearing or have vision impairments. TDF also has programming devoted to especially to families with autistic children. She also reveals how technology is transforming theater--making it more accessible to every kind of audience.

Has accessible technology leveled the playing field for people with disabilities when it comes to finding true love? Join us and find out…
