Producers for the Broadway production of 1984 have announced an age restriction, which will go into effect beginning with the June 22 opening night performance. Audience members must be age 13 years or older in order to attend the new play at the Hudson Theatre; no one born after 2004 will be admitted.

The restriction follows multiple reports of patrons fainting during the intense staging, which contains graphic elements potentially disturbing to younger audience members.
