The Broadway League has once again extended the current lockdown period for all Broadway theaters. Originally scheduled through April 12, then June 7, all Broadway performances have now been canceled through September 6, 2020. The Broadway League continues to monitor the present situation in accordance with guidelines from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and under the continued direction of New York's Governor Andrew Cuomo.

President of the Broadway League, Charlotte St. Martin commented: "While all Broadway shows would love to resume performances as soon as possible, we need to ensure the health and well-being of everyone who comes to the theatre - behind the curtain and in front of it - before shows can return. The Broadway League's membership is working in cooperation with the theatrical unions, government officials, and health experts to determine the safest ways to restart our industry. Throughout this challenging time, we have been in close communication with Governor Cuomo's office and are grateful for his support and leadership as we work together to bring back this vital part of New York City's economy - and spirit."

An exact date for Broadway performances to resume is yet to be determined.
