How to Dance in Ohio: Celebrating Neurodiversity


The Broadway musical “How to Dance in Ohio” is the true story of a group of young people with autism preparing for a formal dance. Based on a documentary of the same name, the autistic characters are played by autistic actors in a musical celebration of neurodiversity and the universal need for connection. “If you’ve met one autistic person, you’ve met one autistic person,” says one actor, suggesting that the audience not generalize about the diagnosis. By representing themselves on stage, “How to Dance in Ohio” also reminds people that there’s room for everyone on the Broadway stage and beyond.
