Open Your Lobby Initiative Shares Maps of Theaters Open to Protesters Today
As BroadwayWorld reported earlier this week, New York theaters are opening their lobbies as a safe space for protesters seeking rest, food, water, bathrooms, and electrical outlets. A social media account, @OpenYourLobby, was launched to encourage all theaters to do the same.
Today, the account has shared a map of the locations of the theaters that will be open today for protesters. The map was created by a supporter of the initiative.
