Broadway To Reopen Sept. 14, Says Gov. Andrew Cuomo; Broadway League "Cautiously Optimistic"

Source: Deadline

UPDATE, with Broadway League comment New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced that Broadway will reopen on Sept. 14, with some tickets going on sale beginning tomorrow. Theaters will be open at 100% capacity, the governor says.

The surprise announcement comes just days after Cuomo said Broadway would not be included in a planned May 19 reopening of many New York City businesses and venues. Cuomo said on Monday that Broadway, which has been shut down since his order on March 12, 2020, would need more time to reopen than other industries due to the logistics of theater producing.

Both Cuomo and The Broadway League had previously indicated that September was the target reopening month, but the governorís announcement of Sept. 14 at a press conference today was the first projection to pinpoint a specific date.

As of yet, no Broadway production has set a specific September opening date, though some shows have, in recent months, put monthly blocks of tickets on (and off) sale with the caveat that refunds would be provided if reopening did not occur. Todayís announcement puts ticket sales on firmer ground, and at least several major Broadway productions, possibly including Hamilton, The Lion King and Wicked, are expected to announce box office reopenings within the next week.
