10 May Songs Come What May With Broadway Suspended Until May 30, 2021
It was announced this morning that Broadway will continue its intermission through May 30, 2021.
Charlotte St. Martin, the Broadway League President, shared: "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."
Come what may, May seems more than a day away. How do we cope with the lights still dimmed on Broadway? We head back to our showtunes, grab our souvenir programs, throw on our show merch sweatshirts and pour a comfy cup of tea for the time being.
