Watch: Autism-Friendly Mary Poppins on Broadway

I love this! I love theatre and the arts and so do both of my children. Whether they are watching a dance performance or on stage performing, we are art lovers in this family. However, sitting through an entire production can be trying at times. The Theatre Development Fund (TDF) has an Autism Theatre Initiative and sponsored an autism-friendly presentation of Mary Poppins on Broadway last month. How cool is that??
