Assistive Listening Devices:  Assistive Listening Devices amplify and clarify the sound onstage. The inconspicuous FM receiver may be used in any seat at any performance. Induction neck loops are available for patrons who use hearing aids and cochlear implants with a “T” switch feature (also known as “T-coil” or “telephone switch” or “telephone coil”).  There is no charge to use a receiver. They are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis from the Audience Services Desk, located to the right of Fulton’s Main Entrance.
