Corona Chronicles: Broadway Theater to Remain Dark through September 6

May 12, 2020–The Broadway League announced today that the 41 top-tier New York theaters that went dark March 12 will remain that way at least through September 6.

That’s a full three months beyond the last extension, which bumped back the original April 12 end date for the closure to June 7.

However, some are expecting to see theaters open for business September 8, the day after Labor Day, which falls on a Monday when most Broadway theaters remain dark. The situation will be reevaluated as that date approaches, with producers and theater owners adopting a wait-and-see policy in accordance with state guidelines and safety and considerations.
