    Hi all,

    We are building an outdoor stage for an upcoming musical.

    Do we need to have an ADA ramp to the stage?
    We are in California. Here's the code:

    “11B-206.2.6 Performance areas. Where a circulation path directly connects a performance area to an assembly seating area, an accessible route shall directly connect the assembly seating area with the performance area. An accessible route shall be provided from performance areas to ancillary areas or facilities used by performers unless exempted by Section 11B-206.2.3 Exceptions 1 through 7."

    I'm getting caught up on the use of the word "directly". The audience doesn't have a 'direct' access to the stage (or do they if they go around the back to the stairs?)

    Thanks,
