Broadway Will Remain Closed Until 2021 Due to Coronavirus

Broadway has once again pushed back the opening date amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Back in March, every single Broadway show shut down due to COVID-19 and there have been several target reopening dates that have subsequently been pushed back as health experts say that gathering indoors is not advisable.

After attempting to reopen by early September 2020, Broadway will now target January 3, 2021 as the opening date.

“Returning productions are currently projected to resume performances over a series of rolling dates in early 2021,” the League said in a statement (via the New York Times). Among the logistical issues industry leaders are discussing with government and medical officials: “screening and testing, cleaning and sanitizing, wayfinding inside theaters, backstage protocols and much more.”
