[ # ] The curtain won’t go up on Broadway until June 7th
April 8th, 2020 under Broadway, Coronavirus

Playbill


Back before we were all on mandatory staycations at home, the lights went out on Broadway. They were supposed to be turned on again on April 13th, but with everything happening in NYC that is not going to happpen.

According to Playbill, the curtain will not go up again until June 7th. That date was supposed to be the night of the Tonys, which is postponed indefinitely due to Coronavirus.

Broadway League President Charlotte St. Martin explained why she is extended the date for so long. “Our top priority continues to be the health and well-being of Broadway theatregoers and the thousands of people who work in the theatre industry every day, including actors, musicians, stagehands, ushers, and many other dedicated professionals.”

Several Broadway names like Aaron Tveit, Laura Bell Bundy, David Bryan, Matt Doyle, Etai Benson, Chad Kimball, and Brian Stokes Mitchell have tested positive. Nick Cordero is in the hospital fighting it. Sadly, Terence McNally, Adam Schlesinger, and Mark Blum lost their lives to it. Therefore, the decision makes a lot of sense.

When it comes to which productions will and will not be back, I say let’s wait until it gets closer to the date.

Hopefully, by June 7th, the lights will go on again on the Great White Way.
