Center President Casey Reitz said, “I am thrilled to be able to confirm that our beloved Broadway shows will return with this spectacular line-up. Show producers and our presenting colleagues across the country feel strongly the promise of effective COVID-19 vaccines will make it safe for companies to tour safely and audiences to return to theaters to enjoy their favorite shows once again. To our patrons, the Center extends its deepest thanks who have been so patient during the past nine months. I cannot tell you how eager we are to welcome them back to the Center.”
To create an environment in which patrons, artists, crews, students, Center volunteers and staff all feel protected, confident and relaxed, the Center continues to roll out a comprehensive, safe practices plan that meets and even exceeds guidelines prescribed by the government and health agencies. These include optimal air ventilation and circulation filtering systems, hands-free restroom fixtures, ticket purchasing at the box office and check-in at the doors, conveniently located hand sanitation dispensers throughout the Center. And the Center will continue to monitor and evaluate progress, implementing protocols and safeguards as needed that will maintain a risk-free environment when we return.

In the new year, subscribers will have the first opportunity to add additional tickets and purchase bonus options Wicked and The Band’s Visit. Packages will be available for sale in early 2021.
