Autism Friendly Performance

How is it possible this is the first time I've heard of an autism friendly performance on Broadway?!!!  Seems like it should have begun a long time ago.  Bravo to the Theatre Development Fund for coming up with this!  Here is an example of letting people be comfortable in their bodies, even if they have an affliction to shout and yell.  In fact, it is embraced!  TDF has taken a setting where it is considered taboo to make any sort of noise unless you are laughing at the funny parts and crying at the sad, and turned it into a safe haven for children who are autistic and their families.  Hurray!!!!
