Breaking: Broadway Shutdown Extends Through May 2021 The Broadway League has announced another extension of the Broadway shutdown in New York City, through May 30, 2021.

Dates for each returning and new Broadway show will be announced as individual productions determine the performance schedules for their respective shows.

Those who have tickets for dates through May 30, 2021 should contact their point of purchase for details about exchanges and refunds.

"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," said Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League. "We are working tirelessly with multiple partners on sustaining the industry once we raise our curtains again."

Broadway performances were suspended on March 12, 2020. At that time, 31 productions were running, including 8 new shows in previews. Additionally, 8 productions were in rehearsals preparing to open in the spring.
