Will the Broadway Theatre Return In June, 2021? Will Hamilton Steal The Show?


Will Broadway Shows Start Reopening In June 2021?

My friends, that may be the $64,000 question. Broadway shows last played on March 11, 2020, nearly 9 months ago.

Although New York’s Governor Cuomo last mentioned that he would like some theaters to begin to reopen in June 2021, it’s possible that limited capacity audiences might be introduced. Although the League of New York Theaters and Producers did say several times that selling tickets with limited capacity is not a sustainable model for the theater. This would only result in huge losses for Broadway. 

A few shows have gone on sale, starting May 30, 2021.. They are
Ain’t Too Proud, Chicago, Hadestown, Mrs. Doubtfire and Jagged Little Pill. The Music Man, starring Hugh Jackman will start on December 20, 2021. For Off Broadway Theatre, Jersey Boys and The Play That Goes Wrong are now on sale for performances beginning May 30, 2021.
And if the above shows decide to push back their plans to start playing at the end of May, I recently found out that the producers of New York’s biggest hit show Hamilton, are starting to plan a possible “restart date” of July 4th. It would allow Hamilton the ability to tie its reopening to an end to Broadway’s “shutdown” and the celebration that surrounds the Declaration of Independence signing, something that is of major significance in the musical production.
Many other shows are planning to restart in September 2021, theoretically several months after the public has been vaccinated. Of course, it is also possible some may push up their restart plans depending on the success of the vaccines. Let’s hope so.
I’d love to hear from anyone on their thoughts about Broadway’s comeback or anything relating to the theatre. Cheers to everyone.
Stay well
