[ # ] Broadway finally has a return date
May 5th, 2021 under Broadway

The lights have been dim on the Great White Way for almost 14 months, and today Governor Andrew Cuomo finally announced when they will turn them on again. The curtains will go up on Broadway on September 14th.

“We are thrilled that Governor Cuomo clearly recognizes the impact of Broadway’s return on the city and state’s economy and the complexity of restarting an entire industry that has been dormant for over a year,” said Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League. “Nothing beats Broadway. The theatre owners, producers, and other League members will continue to work with the NY State Department of Health and the Governor to coordinate the industry’s return and the related health and safety protocols required to do so. We remain cautiously optimistic about Broadway’s ability to resume performances this fall and are happy that fans can start buying tickets again.”

Tickets go on sale tomorrow. However, we don’t know what shows will be back when. According to Broadway World, they are expecting to announce their returns in the coming weeks.

The theaters will be able to be at 100% capacity when they open. However, there will be safety protocols to keep them in business and safe. They are “face coverings, health screening, enhanced air filtration and ventilation, and rigorous cleaning and disinfection,” per the website. I can’t wait to see all the fancy masks that the audience will be wearing.

Actually, I can’t wait to see Broadway open again. Even though I have not been back in NYC since the pandemic started. I can’t imagine Manhattan without the lullaby of Broadway. So come and meet those dancing feet on 42nd Street in the Fall.
