Amid the coronavirus crisis, New York City has taken drastic measures to curtail the rise of new cases. The city is moving toward a full shutdown, with schools, restaurants, bars, and other businesses being closed down for an extended period.
As part of the measure to prevent public gatherings over 500 people, several Broadway theatres have been temporarily closed as well, with premier venues such as Carnegie Hall suspending all of its performances through March 31. The move was further justified when a part-time usher tested positive for the virus.
With mostly everyone staying at home and participating in social distancing protocols, no one will be heading to the theatres anyway. However, did you know you can catch full Broadway shows in the comfort of your home?
