New York City’s Broadway theaters will remain closed through at least Sept. 6, according to a statement from the Broadway League, the national trade association for the Broadway industry.
There is currently no official return date for Broadway shows, but ticket refunds and exchanges will be offered for all shows through Sept. 6, the statement said..
“While all Broadway shows would love to resume performances as soon as possible, we need to ensure the health and well-being of everyone who comes to the theatre – behind the curtain and in front of it – before shows can return," Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League said in the statement.
There are 31 Broadway performances, including eight new shows in previews, that have been suspended since March 12, the Broadway League said.
St. Martin said in the statement has been in contact with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office and "will continue to work with city and state officials to determine an appropriate date for performances to resume and will provide updates to the public as decisions are made."
