VENUE SPECIFIC ACCESSIBILITY AT THE DELACORTE

The Public Theater strives to make its performances, digital content, websites, and facilities accessible to all patrons and visitors. Below you will find specifics of the physical layout of Sections A through E in The Delacorte Theater. The upper levels of The Delacorte, consisting of Sections F through O, are not considered accessible due to their lack of ramp access and the number of stairs required to access seating locations. Guests who have difficulty climbing and/or ascending stairs face challenges with their vision or depth perception. Finally, those attending the performance with a service animal are encouraged to contact us at 212.967.7555 or email us at accessibility@publictheater.org for assistance with specifics on acquiring accessible seating for Free Shakespeare in the Park. In addition, if you arrive at the theater and still have concerns about accessing your seats, please feel free to speak to a member of the Front of House Staff.
