Broadway News How to Dance in Ohio Holds Affinity Night With Autistic Theatremakers Alliance January 25

The coming-of-age musical follows the challenges faced by a group of autistic young adults at an Ohio counseling center.

How to Dance in Ohio hosts an affinity night alongside the Autistic Theatremakers Alliance (ATA) January 25. The celebration of New York’s neurodivergent theatre companies marks the first event in the partnership between How to Dance in Ohio and the ATA, which will continue into the show's future following its announced February 11 closure on Broadway.

The production welcomes Actionplay, EPIC Players, and The Neurodivergent New Play Series to the show, with an exclusive talkback discussing autistic representation on Broadway to follow. The performance will also feature ASL interpretation. The talkback will be moderated by Autistic Theatremakers Alliance Executive Director (and Playbill writer) Margaret Hall.

The Autistic Theatremakers Alliance seeks to reduce stigma and increase inclusion of autistic persons in all aspects of theatre making and offer support and foster connections between autistic artists and the American theatre industry at large.

The non-profit is an alliance of autistic-friendly theatre companies and industry leaders dedicated to the mission of uplifting autistic individuals in the arts through institutional support. The ATA also provides resources for autistic artists in the form of grants and affinity events to foster community connections, plus resources regarding sensory-friendly performances and training.
