There’s no business like show business, but show business on Broadway has been temporarily suspended since March, including Disney musicals like Frozen and The Lion King.
While the show was originally set to go on once April 12th rolled around, the Broadway League has now announced the suspension of performances will be extended.
Broadway’s shutdown will be extended until June 7th. Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League, said in a statement, “Our top priority continues to be the health and well-being of Broadway theatergoers and the thousands of people who work in the theater industry every day, including actors, musicians, stagehands, ushers, and many other dedicated professionals.”
Several productions have already delayed their runs until the following season, and a date for the Tony Awards, which was originally slated to be held on June 7th, has not yet been announced. If you can’t live without your favorite Disney on Broadway shows, you can catch a charity stream of the 25th anniversary performance this month!
