The Road to Reopening Fund

The curtain will rise again. Join us on our journey to reopening.

The Road to Reopening

When we went dark in March of 2020, no one could have imagined that it would take so long to reopen. We have already cancelled or postponed over 450 performances totaling over $40 million in lost revenue, including Broadway shows, student education matinees and live performances of all types.
