NYC's Broadway Will Remain Closed for the Rest of the Year

Marking the longest period of time the iconic district has been shut down.

With many states struggling to flatten the curve of confirmed COVID-19 cases, it has been announced that New York City‘s Broadway district will be closed through 2020. The Broadway League shared on Monday that all purchased tickets for plays and musicals through January 3, 2021 will be either refunded or exchanged.

Being one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions, the district has been shut down since March once coronavirus reached the United States. The latest announcement marks the fourth extension, with many still unsure if theaters will be open again by next year. The Broadway League mentioned that it will continue to work with officials to come up with the safest way to open, involving sanitizing and screening measures, according to Variety. “Our membership is working closely with the theatrical unions and in concert with key experts and some of the greatest minds inside and outside of the industry to explore protocols for all aspects of reopening,” president Charlotte St. Martin commented.

Prior to the shutdown, numerous plays and musicals were slated to debut. Unfortunately, representatives of three shows including Disney‘s Frozen have shared that they will not be returning to Broadway even when theaters reopen.
