Broadway Theatres extended closures to 3/1/21 etc.

Recommended Posts

Broadway Theatres have extended their closures to 3/1/21.  

Cirque du Soleil files for bankruptcy. It has shut down 44 shows and laid off 95% of workforce with $900 million debt. 

HAL

It is a very sad time for live theatre throughout the world.

January or March?


 

Broadway Will Remain Closed Through the Rest of the Year

The industry said it would refund tickets through Jan. 3, and hopes that shows would be able to reopen “over a series of rolling dates in early 2021.”

Thanks. The date format can be confusing, especially when talking about US of A.

Sure is....you have to double check if booking with a US agent.

That is why I prefer to use DDMMMYYYY as my custom date format, no confusion as the month is spelt out. i.e 3 Jan 2021.

I work for an American company, so always spell out the month. Likewise, as Americans think there is only one dollar (USD), I always need to write $A when referring to our money. Don't get me started on materials costs being pennies per pound 😮

I wonder if the New Years Eve fireworks on Sydney Harbour will go ahead this year?  

Very interesting question. My opinion would be no at this stage. Could change if circumstances change.

No PVC resin (for pipes), or rubber compound (for pipe seals)

I hope not already too much money has been squandered this year.

regarding Broadway...devastating for all involved.....not sure how they will resume...of all theaters those typical Broadway theaters really have TIGHT seating and would have to do at best every third seat...I don't think every other will work. Not sure they can make it with those numbers.

Yes ,it’s very grim . The latest move to bring entertainment back seems to be a comeback  of the drive in movies . Walmart have decided their supermarket car parks would be ideal .🚘🚘🚘🚘🚘🚘🚘🚘🚘🚘🚘

I think that is a good idea....those businesses that get very creative for the next months might make it...those that don't will be gone.

I think lots of communities are finding these pop ups, we have had a few but they are restricted to 50 cars at this point. I'm not sure when Dr. Henry will relax that limitation. We have a few actual movie theaters opening with restrictions including the IMAX. We have season passes for IMAX so we'll be interested to see what's on.

We have a few shows coming to TV much earlier than you would have expected, like Hamilton, Les Miserables, etc. We even have had Cats recently, not a fan of them.

I was hoping the Victoria would get its act together (figuratively and literally), after flying down for the Harry Potter show back in March I would like to see some more. Could be a while now before that happens. With so many live shows in Melbourne there must be a lot of actors out of work there too.

Some shows and concerts have been going out either live or via zoom. I keep a lookout on you tube as they usually appear there sooner or later .

And support crew. My nephew is a stage manager who hasn't worked since the theatres closed.

Quite correct, I thought of that a minute or two after I posted.

Looks like it may be even longer before I go back with the border now closed. Bummer. I had a feeling the closure could happen.
