Live Stage Again

The City of New York today announced a brand-new Open Culture program that allows arts and cultural institutions, plus indoor entertainment venues to apply for a permit with the Mayor’s Street Activity Office on a first-come, first-serve basis, the application process opens March 1st at 12 noon running till October 31, all performing platforms can hold ticketed socially distanced performances at over 100 street locations in all 5 boroughs of NYC.

The application fee is $20 with no permit fee, and application deadline is 15 days prior to event date; The Broadway League’s new Chair, Lauren Reid, is all addressing the continued shutdown of Broadway with a lot of hard work, compassion, and determination together with all of the Broadway community at hand.

Since last March, Broadway’s unprecedented shutdown continues to rave, and rage on, affecting theater directly, and every business that benefits from performances on Broadway, Broadway’s shutdown is scheduled to continue to at least May 30, with a possible return in 2022.
