Re: Broadway Remaining Dark Extension

[ Edited ]

When Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed, I could not help but think of how much she loved the theatre and how she had been deprived of that pleasure during the last months of her life.  In truth, I don't know if she was up to attending a performance because of her health, but I did wonder about this.   Without a doubt, she would have attended one performance or another if she had been up to attending and had there been a desirable show to attend.  (Of course, I am thinking of her attending a show in the D.C area, not on Broadway.)

 

Just a thought...

That shouldn't surprise anyone.  Broadway shows cannot return until there is an effective vaccine and enough people have taken it.  Perhaps this time next year but since there is no vaccine now; I think 2022.  My employer has told us that all administrative employees will be working from home all of 2021.

Re: Broadway Remaining Dark Extension

I detect absolutely no surprise from any poster in response to this news.  Just sadness, wistfulness, fond memories of our Broadway experiences and collective love of live theater.  But no surprise, none at all.

Re: Broadway Remaining Dark Extension

Broadway will be back. Once we get our acts together we can all enjoy public entertainment again.

 

"You say

The price of my love's not a price that you're willing to pay
You cry
In your tea which you hurl in the sea when you see me go by
Why so sad?
Remember we made an arrangement when you went away
Now you're making me mad
Remember, despite our estrangement, I'm your man
 
You'll be back, soon you'll see
You'll remember you belong to me
You'll be back, time will tell
You'll remember that I served you well
Oceans rise, empires fall
We have seen each other through it all
And when push comes to shove
I will send a fully armed battalion to remind you of my love!
 
Da da da dat da, dat da da da da ya da
Da da dat dat da ya da!
Da da da dat da, dat da da da da ya da
Da da dat dat da
 
You say our love is draining and you can't go on
You'll be the one complaining when I am gone
And no, don't change the subject
'Cause you're my favorite subject
My sweet, submissive subject
My loyal, royal subject
Forever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever
 
You'll be back like before
I will fight the fight and win the war
For your love, for your praise
And I'll love you 'til my dying days
When you're gone, I'll go mad
So don't throw away this thing we had
'Cause when push comes to shove
I will [censored, violent] to remind you of my love
 
Da da da dat da, dat da da da da ya da
Da da dat dat da ya da!
Da da da dat da, dat da da da da ya da
Da da dat-
Everybody!
Da da da dat da, dat da da da da ya da
Da da dat dat da ya da!
Da da da dat da, dat da da da da ya da, da da da
Dat dat da ya da!"
When you’re accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression.

Re: Broadway Remaining Dark Extension

@CelticCrafter , of course it will come back.  The theaters are in the process of implementing safety features...ventilation systems, etc.  And of course, a safe and effective vaccine.  People always long for live entertainment and nothing compares to Broadway.  Do you really believe we will never be able to enjoy movies, concerts, theaters again?  My husband works in a Broadway theater.  Trust me, it will be back and I am so longing for it!
