GHOST LIGHT: THE YEAR BROADWAY WENT DARK Documentary to Premiere Tonight on CBSN

A new documentary surrounding the events of the Broadway shutdown will premiere tonight on CBSN.

When Covid shut down dream jobs and the economic engine - an over $15 Billion industry - for one of the greatest cities in the world; performers, composers, ushers and customers alike all had their lives turned upside down when Broadway was forced to go dark. Now, after over 500+ days, Broadway is finally coming back.

"Ghost Light: The Year Broadway Went Dark," is the latest CBSN Originals documentary that premieres Thursday, September 16 at 9:00 p.m. ET on CBSN, CBS News' 24/7 streaming service, and is available now across all CBS News digital properties.

In the documentary, we hear from actors, writers and producers of some of Broadway's most well-known shows who share their first-hand experiences of what life has been like the past eighteen months without being able to take the stage.

The CBSN Originals documentary series delivers immersive reports that take a deep dive into some of the key issues driving national and global conversations. To date, CBS News has streamed more than 70 originals on a range of topics including the mass migration from Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria, social media's role in the violence against the Rohingya minority in Myanmar, gender identity, and the dangerous journey to America through the Darien Gap, among others.
