Broadway's coronavirus shutdown has an end in sight.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced comeback plans Thursday to set up vaccination sites for Broadway performers and theater workers to ensure shows can return to the city this fall.
"It's time to raise the curtain and bring Broadway back," he said during a virtual news conference, promising to "move heaven and earth."
Broadway theaters abruptly closed March 12, 2020, knocking out all shows – including 16 that were scheduled to open. Producers, citing health and city authorities, extended the shutdown through at least June 7.
