“Creating a version of our show that is more accessible for families that are affected by autism has been a very meaningful experience for us. We are thrilled to provide a safe and welcoming environment and are often quite moved by the emotional response to the show,” said Phil Stanton, Blue Man Group co-founder.

As you may well know, the prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder among eight-year-olds in the U.S. is 1 in 68 and according to the Centers for Disease Control data; that statistic reflects a dramatic increase from 20 years ago when the data suggested a prevalence of 1 in 1,000. Increased public awareness, improved diagnostic tools and a broader definition, as well as a rise in incidence, are likely the reasons for increase, according to Gail Williams, M.D., a professor of pediatrics at the University of Louisville and a board-certified developmental/behavioral pediatrician.
