Warhorse (with Captions)

November 12, 2012 at 8:28 pm Leave a comment

I went to the theater on Friday night. It wasn’t the first time, but it was the first time I had seen a captioned show at the Kennedy Center.  I saw Warhorse, and although I knew the story pretty well, the captioning definitely helped!

The captions were red on a black screen so they were easily visible from probably most  locations in the Opera House (although there are surely some that are better than others), so even though I was sitting in the wheelchair section in the middle of the Opera House, I was able to see the captions pretty well. It may have been slightly different if I knew nothing of the story, because I would have had to turn my head to the right to see  the captions and then back to the left to see the action. It would have been like a tennis match and my neck would have been sore by intermission! There is a section where people can sit that puts the captioning right in front of the action on stage; I’ll have to try sitting there sometime. However, this time we bought tickets late and the section that is best for captioning was sold out.

All in all though, the show was great, the captioning was great, and I’m looking forward to trying it again!
