The Broadway League has announced that ticket sales for Broadway performances in New York are now suspended through May 30, 2021. Dates for each returning and new Broadway show will be announced as individual productions determine their respective shows’ performance schedules. The League will provide updates to the public as more information becomes available.
“With nearly 97,000 workers who rely on Broadway for their livelihood and an annual economic impact of $14.8 billion to the city, our membership is committed to re-opening as soon as conditions permit us to do so. We are working tirelessly with multiple partners on sustaining the industry once we raise our curtains again,” said Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League.
Broadway performances were initially suspended due to COVID 19 on March 12, 2020. At that time, 31 productions were running, including 8 new shows in previews. Additionally, eight productions were in rehearsals preparing to open in the spring.
Theatergoers holding tickets for dates through May 30, 2021, should contact their point of purchase for details about exchanges and refunds.
Touring Broadway performances in theatres across North America have also been affected. For more information, visit your show or venue’s official website. Visit broadway.org for links.
