Ghost Light Normal
Variety reports Saturday that The St. James Theatre on New York City’s Broadway was part of a vital step in bringing back stage performances to the great white way for the first time just over one year after the COVID19 pandemic shutdown normal, as The Actor’s Fund and Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights AIDS hosted a performance headlined by Nathan Lane and Savion Glover, who performed new monologues and improv dance numbers, all part of NY PopsUp.
Though Broadway is technically dark till at least May 30, 2021, with Broadway also declaring that it will not return till it’s possible to perform at full capacity, New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo, did however on March 2, 2021 green lit that venues can host events with 100 people indoors and 200 people outdoors, plus 150 indoors with testing and 500 people outdoors with testing.
So stage performances can resume at least off-Broadway, and even on main stages with smaller casts and limited audiences attaching social distancing and mask to the deal, there’s also the option of live-streaming your performance for main stages not ready for attendees due to COVID19.
