Service Animals

Service animals are permitted at all of Broadway In Chicago’s Theatres. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) defines a service animal as any dog, such as a guide dog or signal dog that is individually trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability. Service animals must be harnessed, leashed or tethered at all times, unless special circumstances exist, and will be required to rest under the seat of the individual with a disability, not in an aisle. A guest whose service animal poses a threat to the safety of other guests and employees, or whose animal is not housebroken, may be asked to escort the animal off the premises. If you’re an individual bringing a service animal, we strongly recommend that you contact Broadway In Chicago’s Accessibility line (312) 977-1700 and press 5 (TTY: (800) 359-2525) or email the accessible office at [email protected]
