Will Broadway's biggest week be a bust?

Dec 29, 2021
With frequent COVID outbreaks among casts and crews, dozens of performances are being canceled at what's normally a blockbuster time of year.
All of the people working on Broadway (and audience members) must be vaccinated. They’re also required to be masked when they're not performing. Above, an oversized mask from "The Phantom of the Opera" near Broadway in Times Square.
