Accessibility

Ensuring the comfort of all patrons

AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT (ADA) COMPLIANCE

BTL is dedicated to world-class hospitality, and we take care that our events, services and facilities are accessible to all guests.

The Von Braun Center and Broadway Theatre League are ADA Compliant. As new standards are introduced, it is our goal to implement those changes or upgrades in a timely manner. In accordance with the ADA, we are responsible for permanent premises access accommodations, such as, but not limited to, elevator standards, door width standards and restroom accessibility. It is the licensee’s responsibility to provide non-permanent accessibility requirements, such as, but not limited to, hearing–assisted or visually-assisted devices, and temporary seating accessibility and/or interpreters.
