[ # ] Broadway is taking the rest of the year off
June 29th, 2020 under Broadway

On March 12th, Broadway did something it has never done. The curtain went down for several weeks. Then those weeks turned into months. Today, The Broadway League announced that the Great White Way would remain dark for the rest of 2020.

As of now, they are hoping for the curtain to finally go up again in the early part of 2021. There are just a lot of things that need to be fine-tuned so that they can open up safely in the COVID-19 world.

Chairman of the Board of The Broadway League Thomas Schumacher said, “The alchemy of 1000 strangers bonding into a single audience fueling each performer on stage and behind the scenes will be possible again when Broadway theatres can safely host full houses. Every single member of our community is eager to get back to work sharing stories that inspire our audience through the transformative power of a shared live experience. The safety of our cast, crew, orchestra and audience is our highest priority and we look forward to returning to our stages only when it’s safe to do so. One thing is for sure, when we return we will be stronger and more needed than ever.”

I am sure they will come back even more even stronger and with more energy than revivals like Chicago, Cabaret, and La Cage aux Folles. Manhattan needs them to come back. Heck, I need them to come back. I need to add some new songs to my repertoire because my cat is sick of me singing songs from Cats. Who am I kidding? I would not even hiss the songs from that show. It is all Rent, Little Shop of Horrors, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Cabaret, Annie, Hamilton, Wicked, Hairspray, Hair, A Chorus Line, Hedwig and the Angry Inch and 42nd Street at my place!

On that note, we need to hear the Lullaby of Broadway roaring from The Lion King again. We need actresses to sing Dance Ten, Looks Three, aka T!ts & A$$. We cannot wait 525,600 minutes for another for the lights to go on again. However, we understand why! Come back when you can, we will be waiting for you.
