Broadway theaters to remain closed through early January 2021


June 29, 2020

(Reuters) – Broadway theaters will remain closed through Jan. 3, 2021, industry group the Broadway League said on Monday, extending their coronavirus-related shutdown for another four months.

The New York City theaters, which went dark in mid-March, had previously set a tentative reopening date of Sept. 6, but social-distancing requirements for audiences, actors and production staff have made it impossible for plays and musicals to resume.

Thirty-one Broadway shows were in production when the shutdown began. Those that come back are expected to resume over a series of rolling dates in early 2021, the Broadway League said in a statement. The organization is developing safeguards to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus among audience members, actors and staff.

Producers of some shows, including the stage musical version of the Disney film “Frozen,” have said they will not return at all.

The debut of “The Music Man,” starring Hugh Jackman, was shifted to May 2021 from October 2020.

“Music Man” rehearsals were to have begun June 29, but due to the ban in New York City on large gatherings, they were rescheduled to early February.
