The Broadway League has announced that ticket sales for Broadway performances in NYC will remain suspended until May 30, 2021.

“With nearly 97,000 workers who rely on Broadway for their livelihood and an annual economic impact of $14.8 billion to the city, our membership is committed to re-opening as soon as conditions permit us to do so. We are working tirelessly with multiple partners on sustaining the industry once we raise our curtains again,” said Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League.

According to Fox Business, the suspension is “the latest extension of an unprecedented shutdown of New York City‘s landmark theatrical industry.”
