TDF Autism Friendly Performances present Broadway musicals and plays in a friendly, supportive environment for autistic children and adults or thoses with other sensitivity issues and their families and friends.

Slight adjustments to the production are made, including reduction of any jarring sounds or strobe and spot lights that shine into the audience. House lights are faintly dimmed but remain on. TDF works closely with professionals in the field and autistic consultants to make each show accessible and enjoyable for everyone. Resources for each production are available to help prepare audience members for a day at the theatre. A team of volunteers and autism specialists are available throughout the theatre. Break areas are available to anyone who may need to leave their seats during the performance.

Centered around the making of his 1992 Dangerous World Tour, this flashy musical celebrates the singular moves and signature sound of the star while exploring the  creative mind and collaborative spirit that catapulted Jackson into legendary status.

The plot is not much and avoids exploring problematic aspects of Jackson’s life, but electrifying choreography dazzles and the songs are so good.

⏱ 2 hours and 30 minutes with one intermission

❤️ The show is set before any accusations of pedophilia; it is not referenced at all.
💥 Flashbacks show Jackson’s father verbally and physically abusing his kids. The monsters in ‘Thriller’ are super creepy.
