TDF Accessibility Programs Director Lisa Carling sits down with NY1 reporter Shelley Goldberg to discuss Theatre Development Fund's Autism Theatre Initiative which presents autism-friendly performances of popular productions in NYC.

More on ATI:
On October 2, 2011, Theatre Development Fund (TDF) launched a new program, Autism Theatre Initiative, to make theatre accessible to children and adults on the autism spectrum as well as their families.

The program, which is a part of TDF's Accessibility Programs (TAP), presented the first autism-friendly performance of a Broadway show with Disney's landmark musical The Lion King on Sunday, October 2, 2011.

We are happy to announce that our next ATI performance will be Disney Junior Live on Tour! Pirate & Princess Adventure on Saturday, April 19, 2014 at 11am at The Theater at Madison Square Garden. It skews to a younger audience than the Broadway shows that we've previously presented and are thrilled to be able to serve families with younger children.

Tickets for this performance will range from $32 to $69 each and are on sale exclusively at our website.

More on Theatre Development Fund:
Theatre Development Fund, a not-for-profit organization, was created with the conviction that the live theatrical arts afford a unique expression of the human condition that must be sustained and nurtured. TDF's twofold mission is to identify and provide support, including financial assistance, to theatrical works of artistic merit and to encourage and enable diverse audiences to attend live theatre and dance in all their venues.
