Autism-Friendly 'Lion King' Gets Rave Reviews

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Tickets to the Sept. 30 autism-friendly performance of “The Lion King” sold out in a day.
Cheryl Squires, a refreshingly no-nonsense Queens school teacher whose 10-year-old son Geoffrey has autism, said she bought seats the minute they were available because there’d be “no staring and no judgments” at the theater.
When the hit Disney show was over, she added, “We made friends with the parents and children sitting around us.”
