For people with hearing impairment
Surtitles allow those with hearing limitations to follow the libretto (text) in real time. The surtitle screen is located above the stage, and can be seen from most seats in the theatre. Seats without a view of surtitles are marked on the seat map, but please check when booking via the website, and clarify to your customer service represenative if booking via phone, if you require a view of the surtitles. Performances with surtitles are marked on the event page.
My Fair Lady is not performed with surtitles and we will be providing captioned performances for some dates, listed below. Simply download the GoTheatrical app to access live captions on your mobile or tablet device.
