PROMPT ON THE NIGHT OF THE PERFORMANCE
Once you have taken your seat in the auditorium, open the BURGTHEATER PROMPT App which will guide you through the following steps: Set your phone to airplane mode and activate the Wi-Fi button. If your smartphone does not support automatic Wi-Fi connections, please manually select the LIBRBURG network in your settings. Choose your preferred language for the surtitles.
Shortly before the show begins, the app will start a countdown. Now hold your phone sideways! The surtitles will be displayed in a white font on a black background so as not to disturb the people around you.
We hope you have an accessible and exciting theatre experience!
