Ruth Kahn

Caption Consultant

Ruth Celia Kahn (she/her/hers) is passionate about the convergence of the arts and accessibility. In conjunction with The Caption Coalition, Ruth makes theater accessible by captioning productions for patrons who are hard-of-hearing. As an audio describer, she describes the on-stage action live for blind and visually impaired patrons. In the performance realm, Ruth has joyfully sung with The Victorian Carolers, performed in voice recitals with the Sue Ellen Kuzma Voice Studio, served as a church soloist, and participated in many choral concerts. As an actor, Ruth had the honor of performing in a training video for RIDE drivers prepared by the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, the Boston Center for Independent Living, and the MBTA. At Boston Medical Center, she serves as Co-chair of the Patient Family Advisory Council and as the consumer representative on the Accessibility Committee. Ruth is thrilled to be making her captioning debut at New Rep!
