While don't have assisted listening devices on hand at either venue, we do seat everyone with in 5 rows of the stage at both of our venues. We are happy to hold front row seats for those with any level of hearing loss at your request. Email access@thehousetheatre.com to make the arrangement.

 

ACCESSIBLE SEATING

At the Chopin Theatre
While we don't assign seats, if you or someone in your group uses a wheelchair, prefers more time to navigate steps or has any other request that would be helped by a reserved seat, just let us know ahead of time.

Note that to access the lobby there are 6 steps with a center railing on the way into the Chopin Theatre from the street level. Once inside the doors there are 4 more stair to reach the box office and the theatre. There are no steps between the lobby and theatre space. Wheelchair access is available at the rear of the building via the stage door. If you are a wheelchair user and need to use the ramp, let us know - we will make arrangements to meet you at that door and get you in safely.  

At the Palmer House
The Palmer House is fully accessible, with an elevator bank located on the south end of the lower lobby. The elevator can transport you between the check-in space and the performance space. Should you need it, we can easily reserve seating in the intimate Parlour to accommodate any needs.
