In a press release today from The Broadway League — a trade organization representing producers and theater owners — it was announced that all Broadway shows in New York City are to be suspended immediately due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, under the direction of Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League, said, “Our top priority has been and will continue to be the health and well-being of Broadway theatregoers and the thousands of people who work in the theatre industry every day, including actors, musicians, stagehands, ushers, and many other dedicated professionals.”

As of right now, performances are set to recommence the week of April 13. Ticket holders for performances now through April 12 have been advised to contact their point of purchase in regards to refunds and exchanges.
