Nine historic Broadway theaters will be more accessible to the disabled under an agreement signed by a major theater chain and the federal government.
The Nederlander Organization has agreed to eliminate hundreds of barriers to accessibility.
A similar deal was reached in 2003 with Shubert Theaters.
The combined agreements cover more than 20 Broadway theaters.
The government says two of the theaters affected by the latest deal were built more than 100 years ago. Four others were constructed during the 1920s.
The theaters include the Nederlander, Gershwin, Brooks Atkinson, Lunt Fontanne, Marquis, Minskoff, Neil Simon, Palace and Richard Rodgers.
