Last week, Mayor De Blasio announced a plan to hopefully get Broadway back in action later this year!
In his statement, De Blasio stated that vaccination sites will open up on Broadway that will be dedicated to vaccinating members of the theatre community. Additionally, he said that there are plans in the works for how to best manage crowds once Broadway does reopen. These plans include pop-up testing sites and mass crowd control to keep a safe distance when necessary.

New York City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer joined the conversation by doubling down on the importance of getting theatre workers vaccinated. He said, "Vaccinating these workers will both protect the health and safety of our world-class theatre professionals and reassure the public that our theaters are safe spaces to catch a show..." (Stringer). By vaccinating the theatre workers, we're one step closer to lighting up those Broadway marquees and raising curtains.
