Broadway theaters, which first closed in mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic, will stay dark until next May 30. The Broadway League, which represents theater owners and show producers, announced on Friday it was suspending ticket sales to all shows for another seven months.
In mid-May, the Broadway League continued the suspension of all performances at New York City’s 41 Broadway theaters through Labor Day. At the time, however, many industry insiders said they expected the Great White Way to actually remain dark for much longer. And as of today, that’s become a reality. The League provided an update on their website that all performances in New York City will be suspended through the remainder of 2020.
