Broadway performances in New York City will be suspended through the rest of the year due to Covid-19, the Broadway league announced in a press release.
The league is offering refunds and exchanges for tickets purchased for all performances through Jan. 3, 2021, it said.
"Every single member of our community is eager to get back to work sharing stories that inspire our audience through the transformative power of a shared live experience. The safety of our cast, crew, orchestra and audience is our highest priority and we look forward to returning to our stages only when it’s safe to do so. One thing is for sure, when we return we will be stronger and more needed than ever," Thomas Schumacher, chair of the board of The Broadway League, said in the release.
The league said returning productions are projected to resume performances over a series of rolling dates in early 2021.
Tickets for next winter and spring performances are expected to go on sale in the coming weeks, they said.
It continues to work with city and state officials as well as leaders in science, technology and medicine “to formulate the best plan to restart the industry.”
