New York Theatre Workshop provides a range of accommodations to ensure the safety, comfort, and enjoyment of our events and facilities for all audience members. The following section highlights some of our services. If you have specific questions, please contact our Administrative Offices at 212-780-9037 (Monday – Friday, 10am – 6pm, excluding holidays).


Accessibility for all our audience members is important to us at New York Theatre Workshop, and THE OBJECT LESSON is meant to be just that Рaccessible. The space has been flattened to allow any guest using a wheelchair or walker the freedom to move throughout the space. When ordering accessible tickets, it is important to select the ACCESSIBLE ADMISSION ticket type. Patrons purchasing accessible tickets may purchase one accessible ticket and up to four companion tickets. Accessible tickets are available online, by phone and in-person at the New York Theatre Workshop Box Office (79 East 4th Street, between Bowery and Second Avenue).

*Please note: the Fourth Street Theatre, located at 83 East 4th Street, is not wheelchair accessible.


For guests who wish to transfer to a seat from their wheelchair, we will store your wheelchair in our lobby during the performance. The House Manager will make arrangements to return the wheelchair to you at intermission, the end of the performance or any other time of your choosing.


Assistive Listening Devices are available free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis from the box office. An ID or credit card is required to borrow a listening device for the duration of the performance.


Service animals are welcome at New York Theatre Workshop and must rest in the seating area of the individual during the performance. Animals are unable to occupy the aisle during a performance. We suggest that the individual carries proof of certification or a license for the service animal.


New York Theatre Workshop has two restrooms in the lobby, one with two private toilet stalls and one with a single toilet stall and two urinals. The latter facility is wheelchair-accessible and all bathroom stalls are equipped with handrails. The House Manager is available to assist in closing off the accessible restroom for your private use.
