Martin McDonagh's Hangmen Is Broadway's First Casualty Due To Coronavirus Imposed Shutdown

Come on now. Are you really surprised by this? The truth is, it could have been any number of shows. It just so happens that Hangmen is the first one to make it official. The show, which began previews at the John Golden Theatre on February 29, was scheduled to open on March 19. Sadly, that day will no  longer happen. As you know, Broadway officially went dark on Thursday March 12, with plans to return on Monday April 13. Now as much as we would all love for that to happen, I have a feeling it won't.

Look, I'm not trying to sound negative. If I had my way, I would be in a Broadway theatre right now enjoying a big Broadway musical like Moulin Rouge or a classic drama like To Kill A Mockingbird. Actually if I had my way, I would wish that this pandemic called the Coronavirus had never happened in the first place. All we can do is hope that it doesn't get any worse, and that a cure will be found sooner than later. Until then stay safe, and look out for each other.
