Broadway Extends Shut Down

Sad news theatre fans. Yet not surprising. Yesterday afternoon, the Broadway League officially shut down thru September 6, 2020, with an exact return date to be determined later. The shutdown, which began on March 12, was set to open on April 12, then changed to June 7. As devastating as this news is, I'm glad they didn't wait until the week before to make the announcement like last time.

Plus extending another two months again,will allow everyone to sort of reassess things, and better prepare if things start to improve. Beginning this Friday, three regions in New York State, Finger Lakes, the Mohawk Valley, and the Southern Tier, will reopen. If that is a success, then gradually other areas will slowly start to reopen as well. But make no mistake. We have a long, long road ahead of us.

Things like live theatre, will be the last thing to open in New York, and that is provided every thing goes as planned. Now I don't know about you, but I can't wait for the day when I can sit in a theatre once again. To feel normal again. Until that day happens, this is our new normal. And all we can do is pray that things get better soon. Stay safe everyone, and keep looking out for each other. Until next time theatre fans.
