Some of Broadway's most historic theaters are getting revamped to make them more accessible for the disabled.
The Manhattan U.S. Attorney's Office says nine theaters including the Minskoff, the Marquis, and the Neil Simon will undergo construction to provide more wheelchair accessible seating.
They will also create aisle transfer seats for people who are able to move from a wheelchair into a seat.
Bathrooms, concession stands, waiting areas, and box offices will be renovated as well.
All nine theaters are owned by the Nederlander Organization, which will also pay a $45,000 fine for violating the Americans With Disabilities Act.
