Not a huge shock, but Broadway theaters have just announced that the Great White Way will remain closed and suspend all performances until June 7. This is in compliance with CDC recommendations regarding COVID-19 quarantine guidelines.
“Our top priority continues to be the health and well-being of Broadway theatregoers and the thousands of people who work in the theatre industry every day, including actors, musicians, stagehands, ushers, and many other dedicated professionals,” said Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League in a press release. “Broadway will always be at the very heart of the Big Apple, and we join with artists, theatre professionals, and fans in looking forward to the time when we can once again experience live theatre together.”
If you have tickets, you’ll receive and email by April 12 with details on exchanges and refunds.
If you’re missing your Broadway fix, you can stream many shows online for free. BroadwayHD has more than 300 shows available, from classics like Kiss Me, Kate and and Peter Pan to modern fare like Kinky Boots and Memphis to odd picks like Jerry Springer the Opera and David Hasselhoff in Jekyll and Hyde. So, there’s a little something for everyone. Your first trial week is free, then it’s $8.99 a month. The yearly package is $99.99, which is less than the cost of one theater ticket.
