Assistive listening devices

We are pleased to provide the Lawrence Otolaryngology Hearing Loop system to patrons with hearing loss. The system delivers high-quality sound from the stage directly into hearing aids and cochlear implants with telecoil (t-coil), or headsets with loop receivers. The loop can be accessed by turning on the t-coil in your hearing aid. If you’re unsure that your assistive listening device is compatible, speak to your audiologist. Individuals without compatible devices can access the loop with headsets from the Audience Services Desk. The perimeter of the hearing loop includes all seats except for the orchestra pit and box seats on the sides of the auditorium. Contact the Ticket Office for more information.

Due to a variety of factors, noise levels may change during performances. For the comfort of our patrons, we provide ear plugs located at the Audience Services Desk in the main lobby.
