NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — On Friday, The Broadway League announced that that the ongoing shutdown of New York’s theatrical industry will continue through May 30, 2021.
“With nearly 97,000 workers who rely on Broadway for their livelihood and an annual economic impact of $14.8 billion to the city, our membership is committed to re-opening as soon as conditions permit us to do so. We are working tirelessly with multiple partners on sustaining the industry once we raise our curtains again,” said Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League.
According to a statement from the League, dates for each returning and new Broadway show will be announced as individual productions determine the performance schedules for their respective shows.
Theatregoers holding tickets for performances scheduled through May 30th should contact their point of purchase for more information about refunds and exchanges.
Broadway performances were initially suspended due to COVID 19 on March 12, 2020. At that time, 31 productions were running, including 8 new shows in previews. Additionally, 8 productions were in rehearsals preparing to open in the spring.
