Broadway is to close down for a month to protect the “health and well-being” of theatre workers and the public amid the spread of the coronavirus.
All performances have been suspended immediately, under the direction of governor Andrew Cuomo.
Shows will recommence from April 13, 2020.
Charlotte St Martin, president of the Broadway League, said: “Our top priority has been and will continue to be the health and well-being of Broadway theatregoers and the thousands of people who work in the theatre industry every day, including actors, musicians, stagehands, ushers, and many other dedicated professionals.
“Broadway has the power to inspire, enrich and entertain, and together we are committed to making that vital spirit a reality.
“Once our stages are lit again, we will welcome fans back with open arms so that they can continue to experience the joy, heart, and goodwill that our shows so passionately express every night.”
Ticketholders have been advised to contact their point of purchase for refunds and exchanges.
The Broadway League has said it will continue to monitor the situation and make decisions in line with official guidance.
