Face masks will continue to be optional for audience members attending Broadway shows through August and until further notice, according to The Broadway League. The policy began July 1 following the lifting of vaccine requirements for Broadway audiences earlier this year.
Consistent with New York City and State recommendations, audience members are encouraged to wear masks in theatres.
The announcement does not affect non-Broadway theatres, leaving Off-Broadway companies and other theatres to set their own policies. Theatregoers should consult the official show website or point of purchase for up-to-date information about COVID protocols for the show (or shows) they will be attending.
The Broadway League is the national trade association for the Broadway industry. The League’s 700-plus members include theatre owners and operators, producers, presenters, and general managers in nearly 200 markets in North America and internationally.
