It's a small hallway and on the wall it just says 'Restrooms'..when you walk in a it a large room with one big sink (with about 7 faucets) and about 10 private fully closed door stalls to the right or the left. Everyone goes in individually, no matter who you are. And, to the side, there is 3 fully closed door stalls for person's with disabilities (in case they need more room, etc). I thought it was brilliant...I did not see gender at all..I saw a restroom stall and used the restroom, washed and dried my hands and walked out...brilliant!"

The Greenroom 42 at the Yotel is like that. One of my favorite places to use the bathroom as you don't need a hotel key to get in.

There's also many restaurants here that just have a bunch of stalls (with doors that actually go all the way to the sides/floor) with a row of sinks outside. Personally, I'm a fan of NYTW's bathroom signs, which just tell you what equipment is in the bathroom (i.e. stalls vs stalls and urinals). Gendering restrooms is such a silly concept anyway, so I'm glad the commercial theatre owners are at least trying to be more inclusive."

ART in Cambridge also has the signs that tells you which is just all stalls and which has urinals and stalls.

Some of the older women patrons at a particular theatre have been complaining about the change according to a friend that works there.

That's too bad for them. It's the law.

Weird old ladies are the worst. I had to sit next to a group of them discussing how wrong Joshua Henry was as Billy Bigelow saying crap like "he wouldn't have been cast as the lead in our day". I can't with them. Adapt or die. In their case....yeah.
