Broadway will officially remain closed throughout 2020. The Broadway League has announced that all productions will remain closed through at least January 3, 2021.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit NYC, Broadway closed immediately. They were originally supposed to be shut down through April 12 but things have changed tremendously. Broadway is offering refunds and exchanges to all ticket purchasers.
"Our membership is working closely with the theatrical unions and in concert with key experts and some of the greatest minds inside and outside of the industry to explore protocols for all aspects of reopening. We are focused on identifying and implementing necessary measures that will enable us to resume performances safely for Broadway audiences and employees,” Charlotte St. Martin, president of the Broadway League, said in a recent statement.
“We are determined to bring back the people who rely on this industry for their livelihood, and to welcome back all those who love this vital part of New York City, as soon as it is safe to do so. As so many of us in the Broadway community have been saying during this time, we'll be back, and we have so many more stories to tell."
A date for the postponed Tony Awards, which was initially scheduled for June 7, still has not been rescheduled as of yet.
