VIDEO: THE OFFICE! A MUSICAL PARODY Officially Returns Off-Broadway

Hear from cast member Devina Sabnis about what it's been like getting back up and running.

The Office! A Musical Parody is among the first Off-Broadway shows to resume performances after live theatre shuttered due to the pandemic over a year ago.

The show officially resumed performances (at 33% reduced capacity) on Friday, April 9, 2021 at 7:30PM in the Jerry Orbach Theater at The Theater Center (210 West 50th Street).

ABC 7 went inside one of the final performances for the show.

"We didn't know that we were going to shut down for that long," said Devina Sabnis, one of the performers in the show. But she said it felt good to get back on stage. "Oh my God, there's nothing like it. Seeing an audience again, being able to perform."

Sabnis said she feels safe performing again, especially because everyone is vaccinated.

"I feel extremely safe," she said. "To me, it was like 10 times safer than in-room dining, where you don't actually know who around you is vaccinated or what the air system is like inside."
