An update on The Broadway League
accessibility initiatives by:

Charlotte St. Martin, President of The Broadway League




"I'm excited to join Spring Awakening for a long overdue public discussion on inclusion of persons with intellectual and physical disabilities on Broadway and throughout the performing arts, not just in audiences but on the stage as well. As Special Olympics has broken down barriers to persons with intellectual disabilities through sport, the performing arts community on Broadway and all across the world has an incredible opportunity to change attitudes and create an atmosphere of acceptance and inclusion for all. I'm very much looking forward to being part of the discussion."
- Timothy Shriver


"We are very excited to be a part of this special event with Ken Davenport and the producers of Spring Awakening. Their goal is the same as ours, and that is to continue to make Broadway more accessible. We often say Broadway is the longest street in America and we want to work with our community to make it the widest street in America."
- Charlotte St. Martin


"Producing Spring Awakening has been one of the most important events in my career . . . nope . . . in my life. It has opened up a new world to me, a world filled with audiences and artists who so long to be a part of Broadway. It is my hope that this event will help spark a conversation in our industry on how we make Broadway more accessible for everyone in our audiences and in our work force. Because the more diversity we have, the more enriching the Broadway experience is."
- Ken Davenport
