The League of Chicago Theatres is committed to working with Chicago area theatres to make live theatre accessible to everyone. Our calendar enables patrons with disabilities to look for upcoming performances based on their specific access requirements. The calendar includes Touch Tours (TT), ASL-Interpreted (ASL), Audio-Described (AD), Open-Captioned (OC) and Autism-Friendly (AUT) performances.
