Broadway improves disability access
From BBCi


Disability consultant Kevin McGuire checks out access at the Music Box Theatre
Half of Broadway theatres are to become fully accessible to disabled people, at a cost of $5m (£3m).
A deal has been struck between the government and the Shubert Organization, which owns 16 venues.

Work is well under way to improve seating areas for wheelchairs, ticket windows and concession stands.

But the formalising of the agreement means the end of lawsuits filed against the theatre company under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
