Good morning, BroadwayWorld!

Evan Roider, Music Director of the Wicked national tour, asked Dr. Anthony Fauci for clarification on when he believes theatre will return. "I can see opening of theaters with attention to varying degrees of masking, reduced capacity, and attention to other public health issues. As vaccines control the virus more and more, we can foresee a significant lessening of restrictive public health measures so that we gradually approach true "normal" as we get through 2021."
