With the not entirely unexpected, it was officially announced today the unprecedented shutdown of the Great White Way, which began way back on March 12, will continue well into the new year. Currently, the Broadway League says that theaters will now remain dark until at least May 30, 2021

With today’s announcement, the entire 2020-2021 Broadway season is now effectively canceled (though you can still catch plenty of fascinating theater online.) The moment represents a tremendous loss for New York’s theatrical community and the city as a whole, and many had strong thoughts on the bracing news.
