[ # ] Broadway goes dark for a month
March 12th, 2020 under Broadway, Coronavirus


The Coronavirus has come to the Great White Way, and things are very dark. That is because Broadway is canceling all performances until April 12th according to Broadway.com.

Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League, announced the news with Governor Cuomo. She said, “Our top priority has been and will continue to be the health and well-being of Broadway theatergoers and the thousands of people who work in the theater industry every day, including actors, musicians, stagehands, ushers and many other dedicated professionals.

“Broadway has the power to inspire, enrich and entertain, and together we are committed to making that vital spirit a reality. Once our stages are lit again, we will welcome fans back with open arms so that they can continue to experience the joy, heart and goodwill that our shows so passionately express every night.”

This is heartbreaking for the city. This is a huge part of Manhattan, and it is going to have a devastating effect on the community.

Back in 2001, the curtain was only down for two nights. Therefore, when the curtain goes up again, Broadway is going to need us more than ever.
