The New England chapter of Autism Speaks is teaming up with Disney Theatrical Productions and Broadway in Boston to provide an “autism-friendly” performance of The Lion King on Oct. 11 at 2 p.m.

During the matinee performance, house lights will be at half capacity, sounds will be at a lower intensity, there will be no strobe lights, and the only people in attendance will be those in need of a “sensory-free show” along with their family and friends.
