Oh, no . . . more alarming news on Covid-19 as New York City has ramped to 5% of the cases globally and our death toll is at 192. Tonight all of Broadway’s theatres will close down until April 12th in an attempt to stop the spread of this toxic virus. I am calling a meeting of our managers and staff tomorrow as we have to protect our valued employees and audience members. What to do in a crisis of this magnitude? As a globally patented traveling theatre I know where to go when I have a break, but, in this situation, there appears to be no where to go for now. With the theatres dark, Times Square feels like a lonely no-fly zone.
