How is everyone doing? Mar 27

Good morning from Tokyo! The prefectural government has ordered people to not go outside on the weekends, but I guess it’s not going to do much containing the virus since people still do anyways. It also doesn’t help that the mass transit system is incredibly crowded. Yesterday I went to the grocery store downstairs and it was already half empty. They didn’t do much testing since they wanted to keep the Olympics going. Now that it is postponed, the number is starting to go up. The outbreak is ju
Fosse76 said: "The reality is that Broadway shows were closed only because the governor forced them to close. If they could resume performances tomorrow they would (regardless as to whether or not anything has improved). There is no doubt in my mind that the League is (delusionally) hopeful they can resume on April 12th even though reality sings a different song."
I doubt the Equity would agree to have the performers go on.
Kimbo said: "Unless we just want Best Actress to be a competition between Marisa Tomei and Laura Linney and Mary-Louise Parker, in 3 shows that by then will have all closed 8-to-10 months earlier anyway, Broadway’s calendar just doesn’t allow for the same timeline of recovery in terms of the 2020 Tonys."
1) you forgot Audra in Frankie and Johnny.
2) Most of these performances were stunning and arguably Tony-worthy, especially Parker and Audra.

Does anyone find the sudden key change from the company singing to Lenk singing “phone rings, door chimes, in comes company” jarring. This has always been an exciting moment in other productions, but in this one it feels underwhelming.

Didn’t Johnson said something along the line of “many of your loved ones will die”? He’s basically leaving the whole country to it’s own devices without actively trying to combat the disease. If I live in the U.K., I’d bring all my loved ones and run for our lives.

Seems to me that all of the long-running shows (and shows that have recouped) would be able to withstand this, right? A statement like "PHANTOM... may well close down for good" reads like cheap click-bait."
It's a Cameron Mackintosh production. He can keep the show running in an empty house for years. It's up t
Sutton Ross said: "A "deep clean" doesn't prevent the infected usher from having spread it to the other staff members in the house, not to mention the hundreds of people he or she interacted with. As I've said before, the virus is asymptomatic, some people may never experience symptoms, but that doesn't prevent them from spreading it to others.
Exactly. Unless the theaters email people attending tonight letting them know or it gets picked up
JBroadway said: "For those of us who don't have NYT subscriptions, did the article say anything about cancelling performances?"
Both shows are expected to perform as scheduled on Wednesday night. The Shubert Organization, which operates the Booth, subjected that building to a deep clean on Wednesday, according to three people who were told about the measure. The Brooks Atkinson is operated by the Nederlander Organization.
If this actually happens, would most of the limited engagement productions close for good?
Love to Rebecca Luker and Danny Burstein Feb 10

When I first moved to Japan about 2 years ago, I went to a concert that celebrates Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 70th birthday. I was surprised to see Luker there and she seemed to be really enjoying herself. I’m so sorry to hear the news and wish Luker and Burstein and their family and friends nothing but the best.

I loved Gideon's Seymour and deserves more praise for his run. He is a great example of someone who wouldn't be considered conventionally attractive leading man but his quirk and
But didn't the production already received a cast recording with the London cast. I think they might studio record some of the songs by Lenk and maybe Getting Married Today? Still, I won't get my hopes up though.

I love the Band’s Visit for its subtlety and delicate weaving of emotions. Does this show do the same or they similarity only lies in that they are both quiet shows?
