Open Captioned Performances
Subtitles are frequently used by many people, whether they have hearing loss or not. You are probably familiar with the term “closed captioning”. You may be less familiar with open captions. These are subtitles that cannot be switched off, whereas closed captions are subtitles that can be switched off.
Open captioned performances take place on the second Saturday and third Tuesday during each Premier Series production at the Fulton Theater. These performances arrange live texts for audience members to read during monologues or dialogues that are shown on an LED screen, placed in a box off to the side of the stage, or suspended over the stage. These captions can be viewed from any seat inside the theater. The captioner will stream the subtitles while the actors speak. You may reserve tickets in person at the box office or online. There is the convenience of a Pay-What-You-Want plan for theatergoers who are hard of hearing or deaf, at each open-captioned performance.
