I have a Color Purple for late May that I can't imagine will happen, but nothing official yet?! I mean, the tour was seemingly ending two weeks later, and are already canceling/postponing the current dates. Doesn't seem likely...

Most people on Reddit/FB are younger, no? That would make sense.

Especially true given that a lot of movies that were about to start (or already were) shooting are shut down, so there is going to be a content gap on the horizon anyway, so the movies we have finished now will be needed to stretch across whatever that gap is...

Isn't the goal to win it when you are really on fire creatively and just owning the stage in some perfect match of performer, approach, show, and production? Moreso than you've been around forever and never got one, so we better give her one soon since who knows how many more shows she'll do?!

Did anyone catch the previews AND see it Off-Broadway? Similar staging, but just a new cast?! I guess it doesn't matter, since I'll never get to know, but... curious nonetheless.

There was never a hope to contain the virus. All of the shutdowns are primarily meant to slow the rate of transmission as to not overwhelm the health care system, so they can treat as many people as possible; that is the only

Alex M said: "Ive seen multiple ads where shows are saying to buy tickets for April 12th and onward. Why are so many shows doing this with the uncertainty of shows coming back that soon?"
Probably because they need the advance sales on the books to help the investors make decisions about whether they CAN come back and push through this...

I got all of these except for St. Ann's at this point, although I don't think they know what the plan is at this point, whether The Jungle can move to a later date, or whatnot, so probably waiting until there is more o

A lot of other things you might imagine will also be untrue.

It seemed like he just put it on and had no concept of what he was about to start watching... so he wasn't joining the mob, just reacting high and in real time to something gloriously insane.

Most big movies are just delaying their release dates, not offering VOD. Universal just happened to release a bunch of titles right before the virus really kicked in, so they're already taking a bath at the box office. Plus, no reason to release stuff quickly, as a lot of current productions are shutting down, so there will be a void.
I don't think any performers would pay their rent based on an old production of theirs being available publicly, even if there were a plan and a

Those seemingly have nothing to do with one another. A show can both limit capacity to stay open AND be dull at the same time?

A lot of shows were going to $50/seat just to keep people going. Not sure charging less people more money would attract anybody.

That assumes all is well in four weeks and that every planned production is able to withstand the delay.

OK, so no Broadway actor has fallen ill and been hospitalized yet. I think people can extrapolate that what we've seen elsewhere can just as easily happen here, heh. I don't think using a Broadway actor as an example makes it more real, just makes me think I missed something in this ever-growing thread.
