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.

Lisa Carling, the director of Theatre Development Fund's accessibility programs decribes TDF's many programs for people who have disabilities. She reveals how technology is transforming theater--making it more accessible to every kind of audience.
