New York City is celebrating the reopening of Broadway, one of the Big Apple’s most iconic activities, with city and state authorities allowed to reopen at full capacity by mid-September. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has said Broadway theaters will be able to reopen on September 14 and set their own entry requirements. They will decide whether people need to show they have been vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend a show. With ticket sales, theaters will gauge public interest before they roll up the curtains, said Robert Mujica, Cuomo’s budget manager. “We remain cautiously optimistic about Broadway’s ability to resume performances this fall. We are happy that fans can start buying tickets again, ”Charlotte St. Martin, president of the Broadway League, said in a statement Wednesday. BREAKING: Broadway tickets go on sale tomorrow at 100% capacity. Shows open Sept. 14. Prepare your wallets! Oh my gosh, are these prices going to be high! – Kristin Thorne (@KristinThorne) May 5, 2021 What will Broadway be like after a year without shows? When Broadway turns the lights back on, it will look different. In May, the Disney musical “Frozen” decided not to return when theaters reopened. This is the first spectacle caused by the pandemic. The producers of “Mean Girls” have also decided not to return. But there will be new shows. This is the case with Antoinette Chinonye Nwandu’s “Pass Over”, programmed for the August Wilson theater. And “Thoughts of a Colored Man” will perform at the Shubert Theater. The industry has viewed the lifting of capacity restrictions as critical to any reopening plan, as Broadway’s economy demands the site’s full capacity. Some non-Broadway shows have already reopened with limited seats. All theaters in the city closed abruptly on March 12, 2020, eliminating all shows, including 16 that were scheduled to premiere. Some scheduled to debut in Spring 2020 were a musical about Michael Jackson and a rerun of Neil Simon’s “Plaza Suite” starring Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker. Both have postponed their productions to 2021. But others have abandoned their creative plans altogether. These are “Hangmen” and a rerun of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” by Edward Albee.
