The Broadway League has announced that all 41 Broadway theatres in New York City have extended the current mask requirement for audiences through at least May 31. Many Broadway houses, however, will no longer check vaccination status after April 30.
Theatregoers should consult the show website or point of purchase for information about proof of vaccination requirements for the Broadway show (or shows) they will be attending.
Charlotte St. Martin, president of The Broadway League, said in a statement, “Since resuming performances last fall, over five million attendees have seen a Broadway show, and the safety and security of our cast, crew, and audience has been our top priority. Our intention is that by maintaining strict audience masking through at least the month of May, we will continue that track record of safety for all. And, of course, we urge everyone to get vaccinated.”
Audience masking protocols for June and beyond will be announced in May.
The Broadway League is the national trade association for the Broadway industry. The League’s 700-plus members include theatre owners and operators, producers, presenters, and general managers in nearly 200 markets in North America and internationally.
