BWW Exclusive: Watch Broadway League's Charlotte St. Martin Explain Next Steps for Broadway, the Future of the Tony Awards and More!

Broadway League President Charlotte St. Martin chatted with BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge earlier today to explain what yesterday's update means for the future of those 39 shows. "We don't know when we're coming back. We know that we have to have health and safety as a primary concern," she explained.

On the status of the 2020 Tony Awards, which have been indefinitely postponed, she added: "I think that [yesterday's] announcement will help us get closer to what we should do. We have a lot of people telling us how we should do it, but until we know [which shows] are coming back, it's gonna be difficult to make that decision. We are definitely looking at it and trying to figure out the best way. There is no perfect way."
