Autism-friendly 'Guys and Dolls'

Live theater is something many people find enjoyable and stimulating, but for those with sensory defects it can be uncomfortable and even painful.
Now South Bay Musical Theatre is offering an autism-friendly performance during its upcoming run of Guys and Dolls. The performance takes place on May 31 at 7:30 p.m. and marks the first effort of a Bay Area theater company to offer an autism-friendly show.
In October 2011, Disney Theatrical Productions worked with the nonprofit Theatre Development Fund to stage an autism-friendly performance of The Lion King on Broadway in New York. It was so successful it is doing a second staging of the show in September; at the end of April it did a performance of Mary Poppins.
