Come April, plays, concerts and other performances can resume here in the city.
Of course there will be limitations--the spaces can only open at a 33 percent capacity, with a limit of 100 people indoors or 200 people outdoors.
But hey, they're opening, people!
So what can you expect? Well, Dear Evan Hansen is already scheduled to run in June at the Music Box Theatre. And watch out for pop-up performances in various venues via the NY PopsUp program. This event is described as a 100-day arts festival throughout the city and the whole state, with the intent being to revitalize the spirit and emotional well-being of New York citizens through energy and live performances. Venues expected to participate include the iconic Apollo Theater, Park Avenue Armory, St. Ann's Warehouse, The SHED, Harlem Stage, La Mama and National Black Theatre.
We don't know about you, but our spirit and emotional well-being are in deep need of revitalization. And this festival looks like a great place to start.
Of course, masks will be mandatory and social distancing a must, vax or no vax.
We're beating this people.
