The lights on Broadway are shining bright as performances return!

Broadway is back! That's right, performances are returning to the stage on Tuesday, September 14, for the first time in 18 months. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all shows on Broadway were canceled through the remainder of 2020.

Four shows are set to resume performances tonight—Wicked, Hamilton, Chicago, and The Lion King.

Crowds will need to be fully vaccinated and wearing masks throughout the duration of the performances.

The first Broadway shows to resume production were Springsteen on Broadway (which ran through September 4), Pass OverHadestown, and Waitress. More will re-open over the next few weeks.
